Personally I would prefer xml-commons to contain only cross-project code
and a own project "xml-tools" for general-use tools not directly used in
a xml.apache.org project. But storing these tools separated from the
cross-project code is fine with me.

IIRC we had this discussion already in Dec 2001 or Jan2002 and decided
that tools of broad use can be included in the xml-commons project.
