   Proposed new kind of SAX2 thing, with example

I believe there should be some way within SAX2 to ask for
parser properties (in the JavaBeans sense).  One example is the
architectural DTD public ID, which XAF provides access to
but can't report because it doesn't fit the SAX event model.

Another case is the current element stack.  Every parser (or almost
every parser) has to keep one of these around, and it would be
useful to have "currentStackDepth" and "stackedElementType[n]"

What's needed is to have some means of discovery.  Perhaps it's just
enough to use the JavaBeans mechanism.
