That is another good reason to use SAX-based processing: In a
DOM-based approach, you typically need to build an internal
representation of the entire document first. It would still be
possible to work out a data-driven algorithm, but it would be more
limited (e.g. you couldn't go backwards in the document, or perform
multiple subsequent transformations).
