That's precisely what we are doing - option [1] for interfacing with 
external components, [2-3-4] for in-process components. I think of it as 
not so much losing a document, more like gaining an infoset. Some of 
these are areas that just wouldn't be viable for fully serialised XML.

Who's claiming a place on the short list of the net's highest-throughput
