Unfortunately, the question matters greatly for the _design_ of SAX-J:
if SAX-J has to provide enough information to build a level-one DOM,
it will have to deliver _all_ of the required information; if not,
then it can be somewhat simpler.  (It is possible, of course, that
changes to the DOM's information set will then require future changes
to SAX-J, but changes to DOM terminology will not.)

All the best,
