>I expect the number of features to grow slowly

I suspect otherwise. Especially since the interface would also
be used by filters and DOMWlakers. 

Think of the get and set methods as ways of accessing the 
properties on filters which are part of some larger filter
structure (a stack being the simplest case).

In addition to parse events moving from parser-kernel to 
application via a series of filters and event routers, the
get and set "events" move from the application through
the filters and down to the parser-kernel.

Think of the parser and the filters together as a large aggregate
of components. The get, set, setFeature, and setHandler 
may well be intercepted by any component in that aggregate
which recognizes the featureID, handlerID, or infoID.

I see the ModParser interface as currently defined as being 
very important for filters, with the number of featureIDs growing
with the popularity of such filiters.
