I am not ready to give up on SAS yet.
It sounds like your suggestions above are along the same lines of what I have been wondering: If SAS doesn’t really support large XML data files, is there an intermediate format that SAS could use instead of the XML directly?
For example, here is a list of all “DBMS” formats that SAS can use natively in the PROC IMPORT function:

Is it possible/probable/straightforward to create some sort of library that SAS can call directly (Java, Python, etc.) that will take an XML file, create one of these intermediate formats, and then load into SAS datasets so that the rest of SAS is happy?
