Well, I admit to being ignorant on namespace allocation policies.
I am not emotionally tied to the one I am currently using,
but I would like to use one that makes sense, and I would
like to follow some established guidelines, if there are any.

So, readers, please enlighten me.

As far as OpenSax vs. Sax is concerned: AFAIK, SAX was always distributed 
as a public domain specification/framework (not even Open Source). So that
is one name the community should be able to use as is, without any prefix.
