How nice. From the "Java API for XML Processing RI 1.2.0-FCS -- Readme", 
one can read:
> Software Licenses
> The software under the package hierarchies beginning with org.w3c.dom 
> is covered by the W3C Software License. All of the remaining software 
> in this distribution is covered by the Apache Software Foundation 
> License.

Does this mean that the classes like 
javax/xml/parsers/DocumentBuilderFactory are under Apache license ?
I see no quote that would contradict me but... the java xml pack 
Summer'02 has  strongly different license to which you have to agree 
before downloading it, among others:

> 7. Source Code. Software may contain source code that is provided 
> solely for reference purposes pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.  
> Source code may not be redistributed unless expressly provided for in 
> this Agreement.

Can we hope to have a coherence at some point with these JAXP licenses ? 
This has been hanging around since way too much time, I feel. Or is it 
simply a JCP internal debate left ?
