ANN: SAX 2.0 extension proposals.
First I'd like to like to follow all the other people who've 
posted, and thank David for all the work he's put in on SAX 
2.0. I'd also like to second the plea that parser implementors 
start migrating to it.

There are, however, a few areas where I think a little bit more 
needs to be done. I've put my code where my mouth is, and 
written up and implemented a set of proposals for additions to 
SAX 2.0beta. These proposals mostly cover things that have 
already been discussed on this list,

* A means of querying an XMLReader implementations features 
  without first having to instantiate an XMLReader.

* A plug'n'play XMLReader factory which supports multiple 
  parsers and transparent adaptation of SAX 1 parsers.

* An extended ParserAdapter which exposes a SAX 1 parsers
  support for validation.

* A couple of utility interfaces which bundle up the standard 
  SAX 2.0 feature and property identifiers.

Other than the factory (which depends on being able to query an 
implementations features without prior instantiation) these are 
all independent rather than coming as a monolithic bundle.
