:) While this assumption *should* be true, we all know that in most
cases it is not. So I fear many people will stumble across this problem.

But I have one question: if we don't allow to mix different event types
in a single pipeline (and I guess by event types we mean sax, dom, stax)
why do we have a generic pipeline interface?

Wouldn't it be better/easier to have a sax pipeline, a dom pipeline, a
stax pipeline, perhaps sharing a common interface?
