Yes, but what about filters that perform specialised actions? And
what about adding support (stable or experimental) for new XML-related
features like schemas, datatyping, and linking as they become
The problem with SAX 1.0 is that it froze the XML status quo of about
a year ago, and many interesting things have happened since then; with
ModSAX, I'd like to leave the API open for two reasons:
1. so that we can extend it without breaking existing implementations;
2. so that people can experiment with different ways of supporting new
features within the SAX framework.
As I wrote before, it doesn't much matter whether we use Java property
names incorporating domain names (like
'org.xml.sax.features.validation') or URIs (like
'http://xml.org/sax/features/validation'), as long as we have the
ability for people to create new names without fear of collision.
All the best,
