Here's a +1 from someone who's committed to Xerces-J and xml-commons.  If 
either project didn't want to move up to the latest standard API's, that 
sure would be an interesting situation.  :)

As I've argued before, it seems to me that this is a case where some 
Apache committers have simply gone away for a while, developed some code 
based on the Apache projects to which they have commit privileges, and now 
have reached a point where they can commit the code back.  It's not a case 
where a new component is being added; simply where a rather large update 
is being undertaken.

But I'm no lawyer, so I have no allusions that this argument will actually 
count for anything.  :)  But given the apparent unanimity in the 
communities about this being a good thing, and the fact this thread's been 
pretty quiet the last couple of days, it would be nice to get some status 
on when the granting/incubating formalities might be done with.
