My intention of DOM2 is not to make the JDOM more hevy weight. I like the
way JDOM right now simple and light weight. But some features of DOM2 like
the one I mentioned before Event we can easily implement with the existing
frame work. The Events of DOM2 gives lot of usability to the applications
especially more GUI centric etc.

Here's my thoughts: I like the simplicity of the JDOM as opposed to the
cumbersome DOM API. I would hate to for DOM2 requirements on
JDOM, cuz then it wouldn't be JDOM anymore.
I applaud the creators of JDOM for maintaining the position of not allowing
feature creep. Once the creep starts, it becomes a wave.
I have taken to extending the JDOM classes for my applications.
This meant that I had to re-invent the SAXBuilder so that it does
'new' on *my* (extended) objects, rather than the standard Element,
Attribute, CDATA, etc. I was able to do this without having to hack up
JDOM source code (although I did fix-up Namespace.java as per many
previous postings to this list).
