And this still is valid for my use of the attributes.

However, my reasons for "going SAX" was to be able at one point, to
throw away my own SAX implementation, or use a different parser
altogether (e.g. to one supporting namespace expansion, and/or one
doing validation).

And at last count 2 out of 4 existing C++ SAX implementations were
returning "const string&".  One of the two even had customers using
the SAX API, so returning "const string&" is what I'll do as well.
