SaxStreamValidator? (Was: String interning)

I'm concerned that String interning adds one more place for
an SAX event emitter to go wrong.  However, the benifits seem
like they outweigh the costs.  Thus, I'm ok with it.

  However, perhaps we need a SaxGround as well...

This would allow me to "quickly" check to see if 
the producer is following the specification; for 
instance, in addition to verifying that all strings
are interned, it could also check begin/end pair 
matching  and other constraints on the event 
stream that could be sparking wires.  I think
this would be a handy debugging tool.
