Nope -- I want to see it _exposed_ but not mandated. It's actually OK if parsers do this only for their own benefit, but it's more useful if apps can tell when it's being done. The reason not to mandate it is that there are non-parser applictions of SAX, where it's unreasonable to demand that the event source guarantee such interning. - Dave xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
