My opinion may change as I explore farther, but to date in my tests 
the Saxon fork of AElfred seems significantly superior to GNU JAXP. 
That is a little surprising. I'm not yet convinced I'm not doing 
something wrong when it comes to GNU JAXP that's causing it to fail 
the various tests Saxon's AElfred (and dom4j's AElfred) both pass.
