Subject javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory

javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory is supposed to search for the
factory implementation in some places.
The last place to look for is:

========= START QUOTE ==========
• Platform default DocumentBuilderFactory instance.

========= END QUOTE ==========

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if this line didn't appear in JAXP
specification, everyone could use sun's implementation for JAXP, right?
Nowadays, Apache has to write its own implementation to JAXP, in order to
hard-code our "platform default factory instance".

In my opinion, this option should be removed, and I consider writing Sun
about it. Do I miss anything? Is there any advantage in including this
