Well, Miles got me thinking, and that's actually not quite the case --
XMLReader will be reporting its events through ContentHandler instead
of DocumentHandler, so casting down doesn't seem that useful after all
(unless your apps are interested only in DTDHandler and ErrorHandler
events); I guess that we do need an adapter instead.

All the best,
