Yep.  I was thinking of the prefix mappings (startPrefixMapping & 
...typing to fast without thinking.

In-scope namespaces are needed for many applications--including XSLT.  
I also embed
QName values in many of my applications and there I also need in-scope 
namespaces to
resolve those QName values.

I still find SAX hard to implement against in terms of "XML 
Components".  It is OK
for a parser interface.  That's my personal preference though...
