But it's not a good reason. Java has packages to deal with this 
issue and people should learn how to use them.

A good reason might be: it's a lousy name that doesn't fit in
that well with other standard java event mechanisms. I might
just about buy this line, but I can't say I'd be all that
desperate for a change. I guess my favoured options would be
along the lines of,

  ContentHandler -> ContentListener
  XMLReader ->      XMLEventSource
