i second this view.
when i saw the initial write-up on this one it explained a ton
as to why, at times, we need to include xerces.jar in our deployment
container's classpath ... when we long since moved to crimson.
my view is this is an artifact. i too like the feature it provided
in one scenario but i see no way to provided the same feature for
all scenarios with no ill effect.
