This is easy enough to build on top of SAX, but I think that it's
probably out of scope for SAX itself.  SAX is meant to be a relatively 
simple, low-level layer that people can build on.

The nice thing about ModSAX is that you're free to try this yourself
-- just define a property like


(or whatever URL you can use based on your AOL account) and let the
market decide whether to support it.  Perhaps one of the people who
has written a higher-level utility package that supports both SAX and
DOM would like to use this or something like it.

All the best,
