I'll add this to code-generation document preprocessing. Yes, sir!

Generated code can be even space-optimized: If a given string happens to
be  a substring of another string, the latter can be "reused" by passing
characters() the appropriate offset and length. This is probaly what
SAX designers intended in the first place when they defined this
"weird" method...
