I agree with this.  The reason we're using the xml-commons stuff is to
be sure that our DOM, SAX, and JAXP classes/interfaces will interoperate
smoothly with other projects.  Anything beyond that may be something
that we've duplicated or that we don't need, and should be kept part of
a separate project... Though, it would be nice if some of those common
utils could become part of an xml-tools project.
