Not completely absolved, granted, but if programmers use java.net.*
they're really setting themselves up for this.  What happens if the
next Java release also contains a java.net.InputSource class (for
example), or a java.net.Locator class?  Will we have to put out
revised a SAX3/Java just to change those names as well?

All the best,
