You are reading way too much into the SAX2 license.

Ant's binary distributions used to ship xml-apis and Xerces as a convenience
to make sure there was a namespace aware XML parser around.  Since Ant 1.8.0
Ant requires JDK 1.4 or better so a parser that matches Ant's needs is there.

Starting with Ant 1.8.1 we've removed Xerces and xml-apis jar to reduce the
download size for most users - this is documented in the release notes
of Ant 1.8.1.

If you are using a task that requires Xerces (and can't live with a different
XML parser) than you used to get that for free but will now have to add
Xerces <> manually.
