I also don't happen to believe that components should be specifying the
parser to use.  JAXP will default nicely, otherwise it should be up to
either the main program (or web appliction), or the person who starts or
configures the server.

As Scott has already pointed out, Xalan has already gotten religion.  In
fact the version of Xalan that ships with JAXP 1.1 works with Crimson.
