Great! I'm really happy to see SAX2 moving forward another step.
Immediate reactions: it looks good, but filters seem to be missing.

I think filters really should be in SAX2, for the following reasons:

  - the basic filter interface and concept is simple and fundamental

  - having a single basic standard for filters is important, as many
    different packages will probably/hopefully use them as pluggable
    components (MDSAX, SAXON, XSL processors, parsers etc)

  - it needs to be done anyway, and doing it in SAX2 saves us an extra
    layer of standards

I'll start on translating SAX2 to Python now and accumulate more
specific comments as I do so.
