Title: General SAX2 Observations
Before someone flames me and refers to Production 5 from XML 1.0, please ignore observation #3 regarding using rawNames vs. a prefix. I had a twitch about the legality of a leading colon in Name but being around NCName/QName for so long has atrophied my pre-namespace recollection of XML ;-(


3) Minor nit. Wouldn't it be more convenient if the "rawName" parameter/property were replaced with "prefix", especially since doing so would create a nice correlation with the namespace declaration events. Since the Name production of XML 1.0 doesn't allow a Name to begin with a colon, there is no loss of information, and it is simpler to catenate the two strings together than it is to parse for the colon.
