My bad. I forgot about this change and thought it was recently made by you.

The returned list is mutable and should support random insertions like 
xmlobj.getXXXList().add(idx, bean). I wonder about the performance.

I propose  to revert trunk and REL_3_7_BETA1 to use 
ooxml-schemas-1.0.jar (JDK 1.4). There is only one or two classes using  
JDK 1.5 features and it should be easy.
Then re-cut release and only after it change trunk to use 
ooxml-schemas-1.1.jar. This way it will be safe.
