Have we tho'?

SAX2 is, like it or not, pretty much a new API compared with 
SAX1 or the earlier SAX2 beta, for all that the package names 
are the same. It's still an open question whether the major 
parser vendors are going to support it or not. XML-DEV doesn't 
get any say in that, and it might be wise to consult a bit more 
widely before saying that SAX2 is a done deal.

Of course, there might have been things going on in the
background that haven't surfaced here, but one very striking
fact about the discussions over the last month or so has been
a distinct lack of input from, eg. Sun, IBM, Oracle etc. Who's
to say that they won't go there own way?

Putting SAX under OASIS' umbrella might significantly reduce
the liklihood of that happening.
