So, in other words, we'd have something like this:

  public interface DocumentHandler2 extends DocumentHandler {
    public void startElement (String ns, String name, AttributeList2 atts);
    public void endElement (String ns, String name);

  public interface AttributeList2 extends AttributeList {
    public String [] getName (int i);
    public String getType (int i);
    public String getValue (int i);
    public String getType (String ns, String name);
    public String getValue (String ns, String name);

We talked about this a few months ago, but I'd be happy to hear what
people think now.

All the best,
