Sure, I too see a need for this, and I've even implemented it.
However, this is something completely different from doing parsing on
behalf of the parser. Parsing is turning a stream of bytes (or
characters) into something higher-level, but this is not what you are
talking about.

As far as I understood him, the original poster wanted to do the
parsing (that is, the reading and interpretation of bytes/chars) on
behalf of expat.
