In the "Open issues" list in the above URL:

An InputSource, unless it can return either.  The entity to be
resolved may be on a stream or be several [MG]B's in size.

Another reason for returning an InputSource is so that only a SystemId
(or PublicId, I guess) can be returned and the parser (or default
resolver?) can resolve the SystemId.
