Actually, since that posting, I have pretty much decided that I agree
that we should have three event-handler interfaces instead of one:


There is room for future interfaces to support authoring tools,
repositories, and other tools that require access to non-structural
lexical information like internal entity references and comments, but
these are out of scope for the first round (right now we're looking,
roughly, at an ESIS-level information set).  We could also consider
adding an interface for DTD events after we've finished this round.

I don't know what finally happened with XAPI-J, but this is an
independent effort.

All the best,
