It sound interesting, but I'm at a loss to think up a serious need.  All I can 
think of is if a user had invested a lot of effort in an app that was 
originally designed to parse XML, that now needs to be plugged into the output 
of another app that manipulates DOM-objects.  But is this a significant enough 
need to provide more than the obvious solution of walking the DOM tree to 
print out the doc, and then feeding this to the SAX app?

Perhaps I'm missing something.
