Can you give me an example of two streams that would have a merge sort needed that would be impossible? (I'm still relatively new to XML processing, but it would seem that merge-sorting would be very simple with N streams using callbacks, at least theoretically...)

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.
