Have you considered that the lack of heavy discussion after you posted the 
SAX2 alpha was because of its high quality?  There is little to argue with.  
The Python/XML group was able to hammer out a Python binding based on your 
alpha in short order.  We have put this to practical use in 4XSLT, and it 
works very well.  I don't think there needs to be a lot more dicussion on the 
way to SAX 2.0, but I hardly think that minimizes its importance.
