The fact that it will be so cheap and easy to be conformant (heck,
they can just subclass ParserAdapter and reuse their SAX1 driver if
they want to).

The vendors that you list were all pretty quiet during the SAX1
discussions as well, but they all acted with astoundingly good faith
afterwards in implementing the API, and put real resources into
publicising the fact afterwards.

All the best,


p.s. I have received factual implementation questions privately from
     some of the vendors named.
