I'm not so strongly concerned about ContentHandler since javac give a
sufficient error message for a competent programmer to ferret out (though
it's still annoying), but XMLReader really brings the connotation that this
is a particular type of java.io.Reader that can read and parse XML and I'd
be tempted to use it as such (say, plumb it at the end of an
InputStreamReader off of a network stream or something of the sort and
expect to call something like "ReadNode()").

Just my two cents from a student's perspective.
