I was thinking about this actually. It would be very easy to
add, actually -- it's just a matter of picking the appropriate
way to handle this. Since there are three states, a feature (as
in the "setFeature" method) doesn't seem to fit. But it would
seem weird to use a property. Or maybe not...

Which would you rather prefer?

1) Two features, for example:

  "http://cyberneko.org/html/names/modify"     { true, false }
  "http://cyberneko.org/html/names/uppercase"  { true, false }


2) A property, for example:

  "http://cyberneko.org/html/names/modify"  { "upper", "lower",
"default" }

[These are just examples. I might want to modify the names.]

There hasn't been an overwelming demand for it. Although, a 
few people responded and said it would generally be a "good" 
thing to include with Xerces. Certainly if there is a need
for it, I wouldn't mind rolling it into the codebase -- it's
actually quite small so it wouldn't add a lot to the source
or Jar file(s).

What do people think?
