Maybe you could use SAX? It won't break things if it is at all
possible to avoid it, and at least you'll a chance to voice your
opinion first here on the XML-SIG. And with mllib you can even get an
xmllib-like interface.

(I qualify this because two things may change: EntityResolver and
setLocale. Hopefully nobody will veto EntityResolver.)
