What does it mean "making use of the Infoset abstraction"?

As an example, would you say that an application which generates
SAX call-backs from an internal proprietary object model, for the
purpose of validation (or serialization), does *not* make use of
the Infoset abstraction?
It sure makes use of *some* abstraction, as it has to interpret a
proprietary data structure as if it was an XML document.
