 public abstract void setHandler (String handlerID, ModHandler handler)
    throws SAXNotSupportedException;

I think we should allow this method to throw a 
SAXInvalidConfigurationException, to be used to solve the
LexicalHandler/normalize-text problem and similar problems that may
appear with other non-core handlers.

I suggested about 10 seconds ago a SAXInvalidValueException, and I
suppose these two could be merged, since they are roughly the same

  public abstract void setFeature (String featureID, boolean state)
    throws SAXNotSupportedException;

Also, I think this method should be allowed to throw the
SAXInvalidConfigurationException so that it can complain about things
like non-existent catalog files, catalog files with syntax errors etc

Or maybe something even more generic would be the best.
