[jdom-interest] 2 questions

I had a go at JDOM and think it is great. So much easier to deal 
with than DOM. I love it.

Two questions, though:

1) Are there any plans in JDOM development to provide something 
   similar to a NodeFilter (in DOM) with which one can filter out
   certain Element nodes easily before processing further?

2) When parsing (e.g. with Xerces) the JDOMException returned
   includes a reference to the actual offending line number in the 
   XML  file. It would be very useful, however, to also get
   a reference to the offending Element itself. Are there
   already any plans to provide this functionality in future?

Thanks in advance,
