get methods are for chaining delegations possible as well as allowing the
drivers to provide more functional default handlers without worrying about
having them blasted out of the water just because the application wants to
override the handler. It is beyond me as to why anyone would cast the
returned object to some other form whether such practice is sloppy or not.
Please enlighten me.

I don't think customers will appreciate having stdout or whatever filling
screen or disk with SAX event messages. Internet Explorer with java logging
enabled would cause a hiccup.
