Well.  Maybe we need another API which looks like SAX but uses DOM
interfaces.  DocumentHandler.startElement, for example, will then look like:

void startElement(org.w3c.dom.Element);

Same for contents.  I am thinking about calling it MAX (Maximum API for
XML).  TAX (Terrible API for XML) or WAX (Worst API for XML) just don't cut
it I am afraid.  SAX Extension for XML (SEX) is a tad tacky also.  <g>
