I remember having such problems with older versions of Saxon, and the 
culprit was the AElfred parser that comes bundled with Saxon which is 
limited to saxon's needs (hence why it's read-only).

Two trick solve the problem:
- remove the META-INF/services/java.xml.parsers.* files in the saxon jar
- rename saxon.jar to zsaxon.jar so that it comes after xerces in the 
classpath (highly servlet engine dependent though).

Hope this helps.
