Does anyone want to elaborate on cases when XML parsing does turn out
to be the bottleneck?  The only ones I'm aware are in pure middleware
scenarios -- XML serialized out of one internal representation only 
to be reparsed into another internal representation almost immediately.
Profiling/tweaking does indicate that more efficient exchange formats
than XML (eg a sort of serialized SAX events) can significantly 
speed things up.  Of course, once one gets out into the open the lack
of standardized alternatives to XML syntax for serializing the Infoset
does tend to outweigh the performance advantages.
