I'd recommend sticking with the Apache versions. [Just upgrade to the
latest for your target JVM.]
AIUI, although some of the XML code in the Java libraries was derived
from Apache, this was done a long while ago, and has not been updated
in step.

If you do decide to drop the dependencies, make sure you test with as
many different Java versions as possible.
