If that is a real concern, I'd rather reduce the memory footprint of
minidom than put actual performance figures into the documentation
that will likely outdate over time.

Notice that the documentation doesn't claim that it is a lightweight
XML library, only that it's a ligthweight DOM implementation. SAX is,
of course, even lighter-weight.
