Why doesn't it? XOM hides its equivalent of this class. I think all 
you'd need to do is make it the default factory for when the user 
does not choose a factory rather than relying on the user to pass it 
in, which is a good idea anyway. Given that this class is reasonably 
safe when used with a parser, I don't see any reason not to make it 
the default choice for SAXBuilder.
