Great Question!!! Here's more: We are opening a can of worms...

- Are we going to force "EVERYONE" to fix their code? 
- Will this make it difficult for people to migrate to Xerces2? 
- Should this be a FAQ? 
- Should the in SAX be fixed to check for Nulls?
- Should all external code in Xerces2 like DOM/SAX etc be reviewed for this case?
- Should we migrate to xml-commons?
