My recommendation is to go with DOM L2.  I believe that there is a Crimson
version in early access release that supports DOM L2.

I have no good suggestion here.  Rumor has it that this will be fixed in
DOM L3...

Since the licenses for both Crimson and Xerces are compatible with the
license for Ant, you could simply include your favorite DOMWriter with your
task for now.  I'd recommend renaming it (at least the package part to
avoid conflicts).
