get back to work

I am not sure if I missed the final conclusion of the SAX2 interning
question in the flood of the browser wars messages. As far as I
remember, some people were arguing against interning that it might be a
huge overherad for filters, already getting string objects from their
source. If there has been no consensus yet, I would like to suggest

1. no parser is forced to intern elment name / element prefix strings
2. a SAX2 parser can be queried if it does string interning
3. all parsers intern namespaceURIs to avoid the null.equals (...)
problem. Namespace interning
   should be cheap since an XML document normally does not contain tons
of Namespace declarations
   and should also pay off quickly since namespace URI tend to be long

Best regards

Stefan Haustein
