Community issues were most heavily on my mind when originally thinking
of taking this to Apache Commons as they're good at handling these
kinds of components where the related community is small and only
sporadically active. But I'd be happy to do this also within Xerces
(and it looks like Jeremias would too).

Have you seen the recent idea about the "federated commons" [1]? That
could be used to increase the visiblity of XML Commons while still
keeping development within Xerces where I believe one finds the best
XML experts at Apache.
