Thank you very much for the suggestion (and for the implicit vote of
support), but I'm afraid that handing SAX over to a standards body
would be its doom.
Right now, SAX is an open spec designed in public view on the XML-Dev
mailing list -- we all get to see each-others' unpolished, stupid
ideas as soon as they emerge, and we knock them back and forth until
they look like something.
The alternative would be to hand SAX over to a standards body that
might or might not set up a working group, that might or might not in
a year or two put out a working draft, that almost certainly wouldn't
look anything like the SAX we all know today.
All the best,
