C++ SAX Parser objects and a push InputSource

Looking at two existing C++ SAX implementations, based on the Java
I note that Parser gets its input from InputSource or SystemId.

It looks to me that Parser and InputSource are meant for the Parser to
request data from.  This is a little wrong from a network point of
view, where you'd like to parse data as they arrive.

Is there support within SAX (the Java one) for a request/response
model, similar to the one used by libwww, where a file is requested,
and the data is pushed onto a "stream" object as they arrive?
