   SAX2 Question

What does a SAX2 application do if it wants to know about unspecified but
#IMPLIED attributes in a start element tag?

The SAX 2 documentation for the Attributes interface states:-
"The list will not contain attributes that were declared #IMPLIED but not
specified in the start tag"

Does this mean that SAX is not a suitable API for such an application, or is
there another SAX interface that makes this information available?  Would it
be considered bad form for a SAX parser to provide these extra attributes?
