Re: [xml-dev] Which is more declarative? More XMLish?

I think you can validate a streaming document. Start with the proposition that a document is wellformed and valid until you find something that disproves it. 

That does not affect Dmitri's point about transactions, of course.

Right, and you have to handle a truncated document gracefully in many
situations too.
