I'd prefer leaving it, and the user, if he's interested in the feature, 
will have to find a Xerces build that works (I tested, and the one we 
ship in the compat package works fine for all webapps; the one from my 
JDK 1.5 has issues though, with the 2.3 webapps).

Don't worry though, we'll deviate from a pure Servlet/JSP server quickly 
enough ;)
