Hi Rolf,

as I mentioned in one of my posts before I'd like a tight saxon 
integration for proper XPath 2.0 handling to enhance those capabilities. 
Maybe there is also some effort possible for the XML 2 bean mapper 
actually being in the contrib part of JDOM. Since Java is a bean focused 
language this is in my opinion a feature that worth it.

Best regards
