I would like to thank David publicly for his commitment to bringing this
forward. Anyone familiar with the release of SAX1 (at approximately the
same time of year!) required a huge amount of work. [For those new to
XML-DEV the history is spelled out on the SAX site]

It would be useful (and I am sure encouraging) if the authors of current
tools would find the time and effort to produce beta SAX2-aware versions.
This is one of the sure ways of highlighting what works and what doesn't.
It will be an important step towards getting namespaces more widely used.
