Besides causing a huge backwards incompatibility problem (which is reason enough
not to implement your proposed patch), it would also disable the most common use
case for Digester, which is processing XML documents with a hierarchical
structure that is isomorphic to a tree of beans that is being created.  For
example, Tomcat 4.1 uses Digester to process the server.xml and web.xml files. 
It depends on the current ordering in order to use nested elements to "decorate"
the features of the next higher element on the stack.

For dealing with recursive structures differently, I suggest that you create
your own Rule implementations that behave the way you need them to for this
particular purpose.
