That's pretty much the question that we have to answer: do
we completely break the compatibility with the old APIs to
design the new SAX right; or do we limit the growth of SAX
because of the legacy issue?

Creating new packages (and thus new API) *does* make
migration an all-or-nothing approach but if the new API has
features that people want, then they will switch.

I like your refactorization better! :) It's still
clean and separated for everyone to have a standard
way of doing things.
