Given the headers must all be checked before processing can begin, what
benefit is there do doing streaming?

I don't think you have- my view is that what's in the "IncomingMessage"
is a source from which the message can be accessed. It *must* be in
a streaming form (SAX) at the lowest level IMO and if someone wants it
in another form they hafta ask for it. When they do ask for it, then
the canonical form that's "currently available" will become whatever
the other form is. We can always generate SAX from DOM, DOM from JDOM
etc., but there's clearly a price to pay. That's where smart ordering
of the handlers will pay off. As I said in the last telecon, we only
give make the gun; you pull the trigger yourself.
