Not the former one. XmlTextReader consumes 1024 bytes every time
when its internal cache is empty on Read() and the first construction
(note that XmlTextReader must detect encoding from XML declaration).

Caching is the same behavior as MS does as long as I did packet
monitoring (it consumed the netwoek stream regardless of markup kind).
