I think that will be a substantial, and unnecessary, undertaking.  My
_very_ quick survey suggested _at least_ 8 steps which might need
fixup, and I don't think the same text will do in each case.
Furthermore, it is _quite_ expensive and tricky, and I'd _much_ rather
leave it until the margins, i.e. at actual serialization time.

I also find Alessandro's point about SAX is compelling.
