I think that it is very likely that we will make a SAX level two some
other day, which might include a DocumentHandler and/or a DTDHandler
interface.  For now, however, we should probably try to stabilise what
we have -- the current SAX falls mostly within the range of features
already offered by existing parsers.

All the best,
