isn't it possible to include at least the provider 
file core of Miles proposal in SAX2? I could live 
with a solution that includes instantiation, but
the global variable approach (shudder) alone 
will surely become inapropiate when more
and more libraries for different purposes
depend on xml parsers (with different 
features). With Miles approach, the libraries 
could just search an appropiate parser on their 
own, whereas with the system property approach 
the application would need to take
care about handling the "right" parser
over to the library. Thus, using
XML components would become
more complicated than neccessary.

I agree that Miles' proposal could be
put into a separate (sax independent) package, 
in principle, but without putting it into SAX2 
core, parser vendors would not be forced to
supply the parser vendor file, so it would be
