[jdom-interest] Extending SAXHandler

I've started developing an XMLFilter that creates JDOM Elements based on
XPath-like regular expressions and notifies listeners when they're ready
(instead of loading the whole XML document in a JDOM Document).
I tried to base my implementation on SAXHandler (code reuse !) but it appears
this latter is totally closed to the concept of sub-class: No protected member
variables, no protected hook methods I can use.
Basically, I need to access the element under-construction either directly
(i.e. making stack protected), through a method (getCurrentElement, public or
protected) or through hook methods that SAXHandler would use when manipulating
Would it be acceptable to modify SAXHandler in this direction?
