  For separate processes ? A stream of Unicode chars, yes REALLY !

In the same process a DOM, SAX event flow or other Infoset representation
is fine, but as soon as you leave the process envelopp, I really prefer
going back to a stable representation independant of the language, or
implementation details.
And if you start arguing about speed, I will start arguing about the
language chosen for implementation.
