Is is strict to the extent that it cannot produce any
output at all until it has read the entire XML document?
That would make HXT (and Parsec, for that matter)
useless for a large percentage of tasks.

Or is it just too strict in certain cases - like the case
described by Ketil, where a certain element with
a huge amount of CDATA content blows up the stack?
That could probably be worked around.
