SAXON will accept input from a stream of SAX events. There is a tool
somewhere (I think John Cowan's site, ) which
will generate a stream of SAX events from a DOM.

Of course this still means rebuilding the tree, but at least the data isn't

What I can't do at all easily is use an arbitrary user-supplied DOM in place
of my own tree structure. I did it at one stage and it was very slow. I
thought James Clark announced that the latest xt would do it and that that
was also very slow (but perhaps I'm mistaken).
