I don't think dropping 'extends Parser' should impact on this
in any really significant way. Intially I would expect almost
all parsers to implement both XMLReader _and_ Parser for SAX1
compatibility, so you'd have a fair breathing space during 
which casting from the former to the latter would be safe.

Actually, one of my worries is that having XMLReader extend
a deprecated interface will cause javac/jikes/javadoc to spit
out warnings or errors ... not a big deal, perhaps, but a bit
of a pain (I'm one of those people who habitually set the
'treat warnings as errors' flag on all my tools ;-).
