Yes.  apr-xml is a subset of the functionality of expat, which is
in turn a very limited library.

Both the new modules use functionality that doesn't exist in expat.
In the case of mod_proxy_html that's absolutely necessary, whereas
in mod_xml2enc it's mostly just an optimisation compared to using
apr_iconv for all i18n needs.
