No, what you ask for is completely contrary to the design and nature 
of XML. It's all parsed. If you really can't live with that, (and not 
everyone can though many more people can than think they can) then 
XML is not a suitable envelope for your data. You should investigate 
other, non-XML solutions.  Some interesting work is being done with 
multipart MIME messages that might fit your needs better.
