| It is certainly easy to combine the three XML files in a single
| parse with a good SAX ContentHandler. Use a PyXML
| xml.sax.saxutils.XMLGenerator as a base class, but keep an option in
| it to ignore a sequence of starting and closing tags.

That is one approach, but it's only really useful it you want to parse
the documents only to create a new serialized XML document in the form
of a file. 

If you want to make use of the merged document in a Python program it
is better to make a parser filter.  See saxutils.XMLFilterBase.
