I think that we should look at existing XML parser technology:
Xerces j, James's clark, Aelfred2, Microsoft's, Crimsom, etc. in order to 
get the best ideas and practices.

We should look at getting user's requirements. Maybe somebody could
volunteer with a questionaire that we can distribute among existing
Xerces users. The idea is so that we can prioritize our requirements
and also hear new requirements that we may have overlooked.

Would like to see also ideas from Academia user, curious, students, etc, new 
and fresher ideas.

I think that we have a great opportunity to really make a difference.

A +1 here too.

That's a given.
