OK then how about if we move this thread to commons-dev@xml.apache.org?

Thanks for the feedback.  I've incorporated code that will fallback to
the current classloader if a provider cannot be found using the context
classloader, which if I recall is what your patch does.  (The current
classloader is different from the bootstrap classloader which is
represented as a 'null' value in many implementations.  The java
classloading API is a bit messy unfortunately. :-( )  Let me know if
this works for you.
