I've implemented a layer on top of SAX that provides not only multiple
handlers, but also per-element-type handlers. Since it is trivial to
implement this on top of SAX, I suggest it shouldn't go into SAX itself.

(The way you do multiple handler is to write a class MultiHandler that
implements the DocumentHandler interface and accepts in its constructor two
DocumentHandlers; the methods then call these two in turn. Of course either
of them can itself be a MultiHandler).
