A tree. But _I_ made the tree, the parser didn't. It just output a 
stream of events. If all I care about is constructing a list of the 
contents of all 'href' attributes anywhere in the document, I could 
easily do that without paying any attention to the overall structure of 
the document, and without ever constructing a tree.
