Be really careful with that. My experience has been that the XML 
Security Suite   is a mess, and is dependent on very specific 
versions of Xerces and Xalan, and not necessarily the ones that were 
actually released. It's given me nothing but trouble.

About a year ago I started work on a CanonicalXMLOutputter subclass, 
and put it aside when I found some things needed for that that JDOM 
just couldn't handle. Maybe I should pick that up again and see what 
a difference a year makes.
