It's not the "reading" of the data file, in the sense of the time 
required to read the bytes from disk, that is the bottleneck. Rather, 
it's "reading" the data in the sense of all of the processing that is 
done while it is being read in. That includes parsing the XML, building 
up all of the internal data structures to hold the data, and doing all 
the consistency checking required to verify the data while it is being read.
