I think you're right not to.

I think the advocates of pull would be better off defining
a completely separate API, better tuned to the very different
style of parsing and handling they need ... which isn't to
say that that API couldn't or shouldn't be part of the SAX 

Hmm ... is it just me, or are some of these feature and
property proposals turning out to be ways of cramming a whole
load of fairly loosely related functionality behind the SAX
API. I'm getting a bit of a kitchen-sinking feeling ;-)
