Yes, we still need a lightweight, non validating parser.  Incidentally,
there are programs out there that can go through your code, and build a jar
with only the classes you actually need.  Sending the whole collections.jar
is simply a convienience so you don't have to take it apart yourself.

As I recall the javascript version was a read only api with no namespace
support, yada yada yada.  JDOM solves a different set of problems that
simply parsing an xml stream into a tree.
