[not having good answers handing for the rest of your questions, I'll
just try this one.]

SAX has an API for features and properties to allow multiple SAX
parser writers to share a "namespace" for feature and property names.

Since Handlers are generally application-specific and without multiple
implementations, there's rarely any contention for property names.

Just use standard techniques (your own API) for implementing Handler
properties, there shouldn't be any reason to replace it later.
