Yes.  My SAX2 package has supported alpha, then beta1, and now beta2;
anyone who's wanted to has had fast, conformant SAX2 support (including
validation and all optional handlers) since last summer:


My SAX/XML conformance test harness now uses the beta(2) APIs, as does
various other software that's unreleased.

Xerces 1.0.2 just got beta1+ support (XMLReader sans factory support,
plus some post-beta1 handler ID updates).

With name changes there's always a cost/benefit tradeoff.  In this case
I'm not sure I see a real benefit.  But I do see costs.
