Thanks Michael for your ideas...

I have some observations on your approach, maybe some improvements, too:

- The fact that the package is not designed as a set of interfaces, 
makes it difficult to adopt the same paradigm for something different 
then SAX callbacks.

For example, a program that do something usefull with XML, like counting 
the tags :->.
My application writes XML programmatically with SWAN-output and I would 
like just to change / attach / derive a piece of code that computes the 
Now, In order to do this, I must have a complete new implementation of 
the class hierarchy. (Correct me if I am wrong)...
The computation could be of course something interesting, like an 
XSLT-like transformation limited to the child:: and attribute:: axis.

- If SWAN-output was an interface, let's say, a protocol, we could have 
bridges between SAX an SWAN. That is, a class that takes a SAX flow and 
produces the set of "SWAN" callbacks accordingly.
Many applications would be easier to write "in SWAN". The rest of the 
system that produces the XML (programmatical output, SAX-SWAN bridges) 
would not change, only the front-end would.

In few words: the SAX output seems to me just be an implementation of 
your paradigm.
