I am getting the following warning after I switched to 'php.ini-recommended':

Warning:  Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated - argument passed by value;  If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of xml_set_object()... 

Apparently, xml_set_object() takes an object by value, which renders this functionality useless: The only way it's any good is when the object is passed by reference, so that the event-receiving object is the same instance that was passed as a parameter to xml_set_object() call. Otherwise, there is no way for a copied object to pass parsed data out to the caller of xml_set_object() (without global variables, of course).

Please fix xml_set_object() to take an object by reference.

Ok, I am really embarassed now, because xml_set_object() does take object by reference. 

The warning message is misleading though. It convinced me that the parameter was passed by value. But rather, it should say '.. - argument passed according to the function spec', which, in this case, is by-reference.
