If Parser and the rest are deprecated, then why do you want
XMLReader to extend Parser?

If I have an implementation which I want to support SAX1 as 
well as SAX2 then I can quite easily do,

  public class MyXMLReader
    implements XMLReader, Parser
    // etc.

If you're going to cut the cord, cut it good and proper.
