> 1. Can jdom use a SAX parser from the JAXP project?

The question isn't very clear, but we can use SAX-compliant parsers.  We
don't use JAXP to determine the parser though, because we don't need it
and don't want to have dependencies on JAXP.  You could very easily
write a little logic of your own that read the system property used by
JAXP and called SAXBuilder passing the appropriate string, thereby
behaving like JAXP wants you to behave.

In JAXP 1.1 there's scheduled to be direct JDOM support.
