RE: [xml-dev] [SAX] setProperty and exception

Based on the following sentence in the description of
the org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException class,

   An XMLReader will throw this exception when it
   recognizes a feature or property identifier, but
   cannot perform the requested operation (setting
   a state or value).

indicates that the property name is recognized and supported but the
specified value is wrong. (For example, String is passed where Integer
is expected, or 127 was passed where the valid value is between 0 and

What is the right exception to throw for cases like this?
