external extension library.

Can't we instead just import javax.xml, org.w3c.dom, and org.xml.sax
into classpath, and let JAXP work on the concrete implementations of
that abstract API?

Ideally this would be logical. However, the XML APIs are prone to backwards-incompatible (ABI) changes, and this means the interfaces and the implementations are much more tightly coupled.

Additionally, once the current release of GNU JAXP is complete, I'd like to move towards JAXP 1.3, which has even more major changes. So I don't think this is quite the right time to do it. - -- Chris Burdess
