Harmony's XML stack is quite large. We Androids created our own
implementation that omits features like XSLT. Our code is built on
xmlpull.org, kxml2, and a high-performance native
parser<http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/dalvik.git;a=blob;f=libcore/xml/src/main/java/org/apache/harmony/xml/ExpatParser.java;h=60d74b8a5283ad4bd2d66c5866960c391c2340f2;hb=master>
.

Cheers,
Jesse

PS: although this code is in the org.apache.harmony package, it isn't
Harmony-sourced. We've been using org.apache.harmony as an 'internal
implementation' package, which confuses things.
