Switch Leica LIF reader to use DOM parsing (instead of SAX)

The structure of Leica LIF XML is rather complicated, and in many places we rely upon the order in which elements appear within the file. This has caused a number of bugs, most recently  omero:#2939.

We should at least consider switching to DOM parsing, so that we can access the XML elements in any order and avoid hacks like the ones introduced in r6822 and r7037.
