AbstractSAXEventGenerator is a core class. i try to avoid making internal
jackrabbit classes public in order to discourage their use from outside of the
core package. core classes should not be externally referenced as they might
change at any time and without notice.

if AbstractSAXEventGenerator is reasonably generic and without
dependencies on the core we could consider moving it to a 'util'
package. feel free to file an 'enhancement' issue.

i seriously doubt that the exported xml is not wellformed. please create a
jira issue if you can proof me wrong.
