Indeed, it's a very interesting question.
I like the idea of Spirit parser, not only for XML processing,
but from time to time I got some comments that Spirit performance for
parsing big input is not very good.
Although, I've never seen any numbers presenting bad performance of
Spirit, I think people may be scared of using it for parsing big data sets.
