I am hoping that these different Parsers can be used within a new
RequestParser, I am planning. It could be a Generator, or extensions to the
Request TagLib.

The idea would be to generate XML from the Request, optionally applying
different Parser Components to different Form Fields.

Structured Text Parsers
XML Parsers
'Tidy' XML/HTML Parsers (clean up mal-formed XML ?)
etc.

The key issue for me is that the output of the Parsers would have to
buffered, so that partially parsed XML was never sent downstream.

As I understand it .... a Transformer could not do this job, because XML in
form fields would already have '<, >, &' encoded as entities by the
RequestGenerator.
