Most of those things aren't represented in SAX anyway.  But what this model
(which I otherwise like very much) absolutely boots on is mixed content:
it simply can't represent it at all, and an incoming document with mixed
content has to be rejected altogether.

Mixed content is IMHO the greatest challenge to anyone wanting to represent
XML in a linearized way.

that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
