Quick notes...

I am very pleased to see the quick and enthusiastic response.  Please keep
mailing. And we shall certainly need a virtual chair/conductor. Not me - I
don't know quite enough about the terminology - but I will add support to
the process. So a volunteer who knows the subject would get the highest
XML-DEV accolade.

It is possible that the code "SOX" may cause namespace clashes. We iterated
for some time till we got "SAX" (avoiding JAX which was toilet in Klingon
or something). I thought of SOAPI, knowing it would have to get discarded
and so a useful starting point. You can only start suggesting names if you
are going to contribute as well :-)

I would say "certainly" :-)

This is the sort of area I start to get lost ... :-) which is why someone
else needs to come forward. Remember that it must be S for SIMPLE. Like
SAX. Nothing too cunning or clever. And we need code to be built in parallel. 

	have to rush.
