The purpose of the package is to group only the SAX readers as they form 
a hierarchy providing a specific feature, just like the BeanUtils bridge 
in the beanutils package. I don't know if these classes are frequently 
used, actually I don't know the use cases for these readers. As a non 
core feature I don't think they deserve to remain in the main package.

I don't think moving the XMLConfiguration and XMLPropertiesConfiguration 
classes in an xml package is necessary, I don't have any problem with 
them staying in the main package. Also, that would not make sense to 
move them but not XMLPropertyListConfiguration in the plist package, and 
having XMLPropertyListConfiguration outside the plist package seems 
absurds too.
