I'm not sure; you may be able to link to an expat 
shared library from a commercial product using 
Mozilla... also the GPL is slightly blurry here,
XML is on its way to becoming a "core" / operating 
system level service.  Perhaps James Clark would
release it under the LGPL instead?

This issue aside, you could layer your approach,
providing a much simpler (SML?) parser instead
of a full blown XML one.
