I don't believe is is only a matter of style. I think the detrimental effects of push for general programming are glaringly obvious.
It's just event-driven processing, how it could be detrimental?

I haven't read the documentation, but it may be that they are referring to the infeasibility of moving code built around SAX to an XmlReader environment.
It's in "Comparing XmlReader to SAX Reader" page[1]: "The push model can be built on top of the pull model. The reverse is not true." Too categorical statement, I think.

This is not an optimisation, but a fundamental design decision. It's all or nothing. See the comments about the feasibility of moving from one model to the other.
If so, we need more opinions from others.
