The trouble is that we've created a centralized registry bottleneck --
a single person has to approve every new feature and property name to
avoid name collision.  

Except for a few core SAX2 features and properties (and there may
already be too many), I think that there are great advantages to
letting the market decide what to use, and then (slowly) migrating
feature names into the core if there's great enough demand.

All the best,
