Thank you for pointing this out. Makes perfect sense now that you
mention it; I just never thought javax.xml.parsers for the makeshift
extension to SAX and DOM that it is. I guess the entire package should
be deprecated once DOM Level 3 L&S is finalized?

It is possible that the confusion has something to do with the fact
that XMLReaderFactory hides deep in the org.xml.sax.helpers package,
along with classes that are mostly useful for SAX producers.
