True, but "InputStream" and "Reader" are neither well-knowns ADT nor
well-defined interfaces outside of the Java world. Suppose a SAX client
and server are talking over a CORBA connection. What are the
requirements on the object passed to the parseInputStream( ) and
parseReader() methods (non-overloaded variants of the parse method).
Where are these requirements defined?
