I think that it will be a wonderful idea for people to implement
higher-level, programmer-friendly stuff on top of SAX.  Exactly what
_is_ programmer friendly will depend on the programming language, so I
agree that the helper classes should stay out of the SAX core, but I
encourage any efforts to make SAX programmers' lives easier (as Don
has done with SAXDOM).

All the best,
