I agree with Michael.
I also go so far as to say that the discussion is a bit misdirected:
the apparently poor encapsulation of Source is more of a symptom of the
fact that TrAX transformers (e.g., XSLT processors but potentially STX
or XQuery or...?) need to be able to implement their underlying model
however they so choose. Source is little more than a marker interface,
and the thing that makes sense (at least to me) is to have
off-the-beaten-path Source implementations (e.g., for a pull parser)
exhibit enough polymorphism (implement SAXSource, DOMSource, etc.) to
make them useful and reasonably portable for consumption by different
