It is interesting how small shifts in perspective can have major design implications.
I just wanted to make it easy for new ModSAX applications to use older SAX
parsers without requiring any extra code in the application.
If ModSAX is to remain low-level, I suspect a registry is out of scope. As for building
up a parser with filters to meet a set of requirements automagically, I'd rather give
more control to the application to specify what it needs, than try to compose
something based on a feature list.
