This is interesting, but you still need a class that implements the 
ContentHandler that is not part of SAX. You cannot write an XML 
document without adding your own non-standard, XML classes.

Au contraire, the XMLReader interface mandates exactly this:

public void parse(java.lang.String systemId)
            throws java.io.IOException,

Parse an XML document from a system identifier (URI).
