I think we mean the same thing.

Here's what I'm going to do:

1. I will rename the current XMLReaderFactory to

2. I will create a new XMLReaderFactory that simply inherits from
   DefaultXMLReaderFactory, with a note that implementors are free to
   substitute their own class with the same interface for different

That means that an application can just use XMLReaderFactory to get
the implementation's behaviour (whatever it is), or can use
DefaultXMLReaderFactory to be certain that it's getting the current

Sounds OK?

All the best,
