| Should we perhaps make standalone a boolean instead?  It can only have
| two values anyway, and this will spare us a lot of
| standalone.equals(this or that).

| I did that at first with my internal event APIs, but it didn't work
| out.  There is then no way of knowing whether the document *really*
| said yes or no, or whether it was just no there at all and the
| default was used. This prevents the recreation of the original
| document.

Given that this is supposed to be the handler for lexical information,
where this sort of thing does matter, I agree. It should be a string.
Don't know how I managed to overlook that.
