I think this would be a serious political mistake. Several
parsers are out there already with support for the SAX2 alpha
LexicalHandler. It'd be one thing to change the interface or
modify it's functionality in various ways ... but it'd be
quite another to retract it altogether: that'd be just asking 
for SAX to be forked.

Whilst I appreciate the urgency, I can't help feeling that
we're getting bounced into things here.
