RE: [xml-dev] When parsing speed matters (was Re: [xml-dev] No XML Binaries? Buy Hardware)

Finally, the prosaic answer:  the accelerators are not necessary for parsing
but for inspection and routing. The 'otherwise process' is somewhat less
prosaic.  It sounds like the applications that make the civil liberties
lawyers nervous, but politics aside, wouldn't requirements to inspect, route
and 'otherwise process' be there for any application that has to open the
packets and 'look see' even if the bits weren't in XML?

IOW, given that prose, this doesn't seem to be an XML issue although
possibly XML makes it easier/convenient to do.

On the other hand consider a network carrier or major data centre that
has to inspect, route, or otherwise process XML documents at wire
speed as they fly past.  That *is* a situation where accelerated
parsing of some kind might make a difference.
