Yes, I've use XmlTextReader in .NET applications. It's easy to work 
with. I haven't implemented entity callbacks and things like that, but 
they are pretty straightforward to do.

Also note that we should move to Relax-NG for profile validation in the 
future, and thus validation during the profile load will be a non-issue 
(well, I don't believe there's an easy way to do Relax-NG validation in 
libxml2, but there may be).
