To be clear, I have no dog in this hunt. I don't expect to work on a
streaming implementation; it isn't realistic for my needs or my project's
resources. We're DOM based, focused on enveloped (SAML) and ID-based
signatures, and I expect to stay there for the foreseeable future.

I just wanted to highlight what sounded like a pretty big issue to nail down
before we get too far into the XPath details.

To inject a totally uninformed opinion, it seemed odd to me to talk about
2-pass streaming, given what I thought the point of it was, but I guess it's
just a matter of degree. You still avoid the cost of the DOM, but you
obviously can't handle really huge documents well.
