In theory you are perfectly right. Each tool has strengths and
weaknesses and it would
be great to mix and match.
But unless implemented correctly this can yield to a performance
Unless ALL tools are implemented to work on the same physical
XML, you'll spend all your time copying and converting the data between
physical formats (e..g. one consumes and produces SAX, the other one
expects a DOM and the
last one wants a JSR 173).
