buffer management needed by the possibility that some token will be an

many implementations.

FWIW, I completely agree (e.g. with Sean) that this is seldom a bottleneck 
in applications, but it does seem to be a bottleneck in some industrial- 
strength infrastructure implementations.  That's a major reason given by 
the XMLP people in pushing-back on calls for SOAP to support the full XML
