Point taken... since also the XML serialization is performed in a standard
way using identity might be a good idea to ship xalan.

Is it planned to clean up the distrib ?
I find it rather problematic to have each time a jaxp, dom, sax
implementation/interface inside xalan. When is supposed to be the separation
between components ?
My preferences would be to split all this in:
jaxp.jar, <parser>.jar, <xslprocessor>.jar, dom2.jar, sax2.jar
I raised the issue some time ago w/ Shane and there was a discussion going
in 'general' for that but I did not follow the issue since then.
