Which reminds me that SAX still needs some kind of statement about when
errors are detected and reported. If we ask a ModSAX parser to do
validation, do we get a guarantee that a duplicate ID attribute will be
reported when the first duplicate value is encountered, or is the parser
allowed to wait until end of document?
