Why is it expensive?  

As elements are parsed from the stream, each element can be decoded into the
corresponding component of the SEQUENCE (matched by name), and an enumerator
value identifying the component can be appended to the "order" component
(the list of enumerator values).  Why do you say one has to buffer the
entire "all"?
