One of the benefits of XML has been that the same XML document can work
anywhere, that any XML processor is licensed by the XML specification to
process any XML document.

It's often not the schema designers who will be aware of the need for
streaming, but some other, future consumer of documents, long after the
schema designer has wandered off.
