I would agree with you on that one but not in the context of maven. The 
issue I am facing is maven forcing *me* to use a given parser. The only
choice I had so far was to fork the JVM to compile my code.

To me, Maven should not add stuff in the classpath used to compile the project.
Up to the project's maintainer to choose which library he's gonna use.
