Subject Re: Purpose of SAX event recorders

But the multi-ref processing in encoding uses a fixups HashMap and other 
means to take care of this problem.
I don't see any use of the SAX event recorders in the multi-ref

With multi-ref in SOAP, there are times when you encounter data that you
don't know how to deserialize.  As this data is coming in off a stream,
there needs to be a place to "park" it until enough context is present.
