Indeed so. There is a class in SAXON that does this, it's
available for use, but not actively promoted as a feature,
since it was written for internal use.

One thing I needed to do in SAXON was to allow the SAX
application to get a reference to the DOM element currently
being processed; I did this by subclassing the SAX Locator
class. Does DOMParser provide anything comparable?
