This is normal with SAX in those libraries I've used (expat, Xerces,
libxml2).  You just need to select a parse mode that gets its input
via a callback, and then provide a non-blocking callback.  Indeed,
you can do the same with DOM, though there's less to gain by it.

I've spent most of today hacking mod_xml to stream its input properly:
hope to update the distributed version sometime over the weekend.
