In practice, I think that's true, but I don't think there's anything 
in the SAX spec that requires it. I don't see why you couldn't set 
http://xml.org/sax/features/validation (Or 
http://xml.org/sax/features/external-general-entities and 
http://xml.org/sax/features/external-parameter-entities) some time 
after the XML declaration has been read but before the root element 
or perhaps the DOCTYPE declaration has been read, perhaps in 
startDocument() or setDocumentLocator().
