Because that's what descriptions of similar interfaces use. I'm
personally not very happy about the word. "Token", which Stefan Seefeld
just used, seems more appropriate.

No, I should not.
Please don't get me wrong. My high-level plan for this library is to
provide more than one interface. I want a "pull" interface that I'm
designing right now, and which this thread is about. I want a "push"
interface akin to SAX, which is what you're thinking about. So yes,
there will be such an interface, but this thread is not about it. And
finally, there will be one or more object model interfaces, like DOM.
Thank you for your ideas, though. I will think about them when the time
comes to design the push interface.
