  It was really fun to try to build just this on top of Java SAX; that 
was my first real experience with Java reflection!  ;-)
  I think this makes a lot of sense for use without namespaces, but
not with namespaces.  (I'm not a fan of the "" namespace.)  Perhaps
the startElement() and endElement() should be implemented as a
subclass or filter?  It may even be reasonable to have it as SAX2
"feature" that can be tested or requested.
