Personally, I'd start with at least SAX. SAX is a very efficient
model that can easily be employed to implement any other model. It's
interface may not be overly palatable for general application
development in C++, but as a basis for a library that is it would be
examplary. I fear that going the other direction (i.e. develop a
different model first and then implement SAX on it) may result in
poor performance or require concessions in the new model to allow for
full implementation of SAX.
