Has Microsoft made changes to msxml to improve performance with larger files?  It seems to be working much better, and I don't understand why.  Not that I'm complaining.

It has always been know that the DOM has issues with large files.  My golden rule has been to keep files under 4 mb if I want to avoid problems.  For this reason, we have been in the process of moving things to the xmlreader. 

To test out performance, we tried to create a benchmark test where we first process a file using the DOM and then process it using the xmlreader.  I was expecting the DOM to start choking on large files, but it didn't happen. 

Has anything changed, or was I just so scared from msxml 3.0 that I never tried it again?
