I attached it to the ticket that seems to have been the source of this addition.
Please note that the tulip mailing list is not an appropriate place to discuss additions to the XML libraries, and ElementTree in particular.
Well, the bug tracker is the main point of discussion, except that few people bothered discussing it.
Is there a way to get automatic notification when the XML component is assigned to a ticket? (Not that it would have helped in this case, as the component was missing from the ticket.)
You could ask to get included in the "experts" index: http://docs.python.org/devguide/experts.html (I doubt anyone would object to that)
Anyway, given that there isn't really the One Obvious Way to do it, maybe you should just add a docstring to the class (ahem), reference the stream protocol as the base for its API, and then rename it to IncrementalStreamParser.
I don't think there's any point in making the class name longer. Parsing XML incrementally is pretty much what it does. As for the docstring, uh, well, sure :-)
(IMHO, IncrementalParser is the One Obvious Way to do incremental XML parsing in 3.4, but YMMV)
