I have an idea for how we can handle that (and other, similar
problems), but I'll cover it in a separate posting (it's still brewing

I disagree here -- if third parties want to be able to define feature
names, they need a way to avoid collision (i.e. we want to make
certain that both Oracle and Sun can define properties like
'normalize' without blowing up the whole system).
That said, the Java package naming scheme also provides DNS-based
uniqueness, as in 'org.xml.sax.features.validation'. It's simply a
matter of taste:
- org.xml.sax.features.validation is more of a Java flavour.
- http://xml.org/sax/features/validation is more of an XML/Namespaces
All the best,
