Or, what am I not understanding?

  That your parser is not an XML parser anymore but for a subset of XML.
You can hack all you want but this won't be handled in a standard fashion,
which also mean you're pretty much on your own for debugging in case of
problems. Libxml2 push API requires to indicate the end of stream on the last
push. This changes the behaviour, if you don't you don't have garantee that
all errors will be caught, and you're on your own to debug those case. I
just want to be very clear upfront about it.

Fair enough. Thank you evey much.
