that would allow for users of xerces2 to quickly get module they
want ot use just by getting xerces 2 distribution instead of many
separate modules (if xerces 2 is split into modules ...)

xerces has very  good exposure with xml developers and such feedback
would be certainly very valuable!

XMLPULL API is intentionally simple to make it easy to use and
to create both small implementations that are limited  but well suited
for J2ME but as well allow for implementations that
are full featured (such as i think eventually xni2xmlpull will be by trying to
leverage xerces2). XMLPULL API  was developed evolutionally and is
result of merging kXML and XPP2 and is intended to work easily
fromJ 2ME to J2EE environments. JSR 173 is different as it is targeted
for J2SE Java platform (so can take full advantage of it)
and has more broad API plans including support for reading, representing
XML as events and writing XML .
