I don't see the point in a Handler throwing an IOException to a Parser in most
cases.  That is what this item implies, right?  What could a DocumentHandler
mean by throwing an IOException during a call to startElement?  The I/O has
already occurred before the handler gets involved.  The only times I can think
of where it *does* make sense is:

- EntityResolver.resolveEntity(), where the handler is taking part in IO
- ErrorHandler.*(), where a handler is passed an exception and may reflect it
back to the parser
