[jdom-interest] streamdom -- middle ground between SAX and DOM

This is a wonderful idea, and if I may suggest
further elaboration, it would be nice to have JDOM
supply a single API, SAX or DOM
invisible to the programmer, but are real-time,
and dynamic decisions made by the parser behind the scenes,
based on system monitoring and resource optimization  scheme
