Perilously close to 'Design Time' flag (a la Beans) - neat idea, but not quite 
as simple as it at first appears. Remember I (a 'writer') may want to see what 
my 'reader' sees in my 'IDE'.

As I say, neat idea

Perhaps we should have a writer feature that we can turn on or off, which will 
give us two broadly different modes of operation. Other features may be
turned on or off individually, but the default for those features may well depen
on the use of the parser by a reader or a writer.
This also gives us a way to partition events--an interface for a set of events 
should not include both reader and writer events.
