This complaint has come up a number of times, but I don't know of it
being addressed.

I *think* the original motivation was to assure that intermediaries
wouldn't have to buffer an entire message if the handlers that are
invoked on them don't require it. The implications of this re:
parsing aren't clear to me (but probably are to others in the group).

'processing' is a bad term for this, but it slipped through. Perhaps
we can revise the requirement to reflect the above, if consensus
supports it.


Generally re: 'processing', There's been some discussion about the
constraints on message processing in XMLP, but I don't think there's
consensus yet about what they should be.
