I've got the same issue with Saxon. I would love to introduce generics into
the API, but there are still too many users on 1.4 who can't be left behind.

At the moment with Saxon I'm thinking of introducing a 1.5 API that uses
generics, to sit alongside the 1.4 API. I'm also thinking of sitting it out
and waiting until 1.4 is no longer a requirement. It's not easy to decide
between these two options, and the same applies I'm sure to JDOM.
