I've just updated the SAXProperties interface to reflect this

For those of you who missed the original announcement during 
the changeover of the list to xml.org:

I've written up and implemented a set of proposals for 
additions to SAX 2.0beta. These proposals mostly cover things 
that have already been discussed on this list,

* A means of querying an XMLReader implementations features 
  without first having to instantiate an XMLReader.

* A plug'n'play XMLReader factory which supports multiple 
  parsers and transparent adaptation of SAX 1 parsers.

* An extended ParserAdapter which exposes a SAX 1 parsers
  support for validation.

* A couple of utility interfaces which bundle up the standard 
  SAX 2.0 feature and property identifiers.

Other than the factory (which depends on being able to query an 
implementations features without prior instantiation) these are 
all independent rather than coming as a monolithic bundle.

Detailed descriptions and downloads can be found here,
