Hi all,
I've been studying Miles proposal and I wanted to share with you my

0. The benefits are real and it is great that David is taking the time
   to considerate these before the final day.

1. Even though some the benefits of Miles proposal could be achieved via
   other means (e.g.The possibility of querying the features of an
   XMLReader a priori, could be a matter of static methods), Miles
   proposal, in my opinion is an elegant and congruent way of doing
   it(see Miles last post about factories).

2. I agree with the design principle of keeping SAX as simple as
   possible... but no less. Specially when such lightweight add-ons
   can be included in the standard distribution as an extension
   package, thus providing the benefits, and keeping SAX _core_ as small
   as possible. 

3. I don't think the problem so far with Miles proposal is technical
   or aesthetic ;), it seems to me both good design and
   lightweight... frankly what I think is needed <callForAction> is a
   wider audience that download this and share their opinions here, so
   David can have a more accurate idea of how many people would
   consider this really beneficial.</callForAction>
