But as you say it has to happen for EACH SAX event. I don't think it's 
lightweight. It happens hundreds times even for simple HTML pages - per

Why do you go this low-level approach and instead of just implementing a 
MethodInterceptor applied with Spring's AOP. That makes it independent 
from Spring itself since the interceptor can be applied differently later.

I wonder if that's a requirement at all. IMO a properly scoped OM *is* 
part of the component setup. So I would not even care if the 
corresponding code has to be touched.

Anyway, I can't see where the simple wrapper approach fails. We'll get 
kind of a hierarchical OM similar to Spring's hierarchical application 
contexts. Creating the wrapped OM can happen in the same AOP/ 
BeanPostProcessor way, but it happens only on setup time and once, not 
for each SAX event by intercepting the setObjectModel() method:

on setObjectModel(parentOM) on component xy
do xy.setObjectModel(new ObjectModelWrapper(parentOM))

The ObjectModelWrapper holds a map of local vars and delegates to the 
parent OM if it can not find a value in its local vars.
