That seems like a good enhancement and a reasonable way to approach it. 
One issue though is that if someone passes only an InputStream or
Reader, there'll be no systemId.  Make sure you take care of that case. 
Why don't you make the changes, test the error handling from every
public build() method in SAXBuilder, and submit a patch?
