Fast filter support in SAX2

I'd like to suggest another method in Parser2:

    public String unique(String);

as well as a featureID for requesting unique element and attribute names.

The thought is to bring the speed of filters closer to the speed of doing 
things within a parser. 

If a parser supports both the unique feature and provides access to its
element stack, then we are well on the way to being able to implement
Simpon's layered parser.
