I would be interested to know hwere the API line is drawn. The helpers that
come /with/ the SAX API or /as part of/ the SAX API clearly allow you to add
attributes (AttributesImpl). Thus according to the API, it is implied that
any implemention could very easily have the ability to add attributes. In
fact, I can't think of a single implementation that doesn't have this
ability at least internally.

It is an interesting point all the same, can you elaborate here? I don't
think I can make it to Manhattan-- though I would love to.
