[Mono-list] XmlTextReader: MS compatibility, or W3C conformance?

I don't fully understand the topic because of poor XML knowledge but why it
is not pointed the MS NET's XmlParser is *not SAX parser* while others are
(i.e. ISAXXMLReader interface in MSXML 4 or XMLReader class in JDK 1.4). It
works differently - namely, it is not event driven. While it less stanard
but otherwise is better. I was somewhat disappointed when I saw in MonoDoc
what mono's XmlReader is SAX parser (rather than MSNET's like). Is it
misprint or mono's XmlReader is SAX really? I would prefer MS's.
