We do something like this in LT-XML (and soon, LT-XML 2).  You get the
same C structures regardless of whether you're streaming or not, but
in the streaming case the children are not filled in (though you can
access the ancestors back to the root).  We find it useful to be able
to switch from streaming to tree mode in mid document: you stream the
document until you come to an "interesting" element, fill in the
subtree rooted there, process the subtree, free it, and continue
