Why should they try to change a system running fine. 
Development of SAX at xml-dev with you as a kind of 
moderator avoids bad compromises resulting from two 
consortium members not willing to give up their 
position, ending up with having redundancy in the 
standard.  SAX is a good standard, and the big 
vendors can use it without putting man power and 
money into standardization groups...
