This whole thread brought to mind an approach to streaming XML that I 
first saw described by David Megginson several years ago[1]--simply 
separate documents in the stream with the formfeed character, which is 
never legal in an XML document. I believe this approach will work even 
with XML 1.1, since it requires that control characters must be encoded 
as character references.
