| An event to signal the end of the internal subset would be nice, in
| addition to what you listed.

| You'd get that through the start/endExternalEntity event -- the
| external subset is just a special entity, read after the internal
| subset (we might want to use the special name '[dtd]' for it).
I should have thought of this, of course, and, yes, I think we should
use a separate name for the external subset entity, to make it easier
to identify. Doing so isn't as clean as we might wish, but I can't
think of any good alternatives offhand.
| SAX in general is designed to be bothersome, in part to encourage
| people to build decent, friendly interfaces (SAXON, MDSAX,
| DocuverseSDK, Sun's XML library) on top of it. The idea is to defer
| any design decisions that we can defer.
Yeah, I know, and I agree. I think it's the right way to go.
