Hi Renato,

Congratulations with all your work.

Since there appears no strong demand, I would be in favor of it removed.
For TAPIR Intermediate, a possible work around solution could be 2  
access points each with differing output models, one being a subset of  
the other?

I personally have never had a need to use it.  Most XML clients I use  
have a "namespaceAware" parameter anyway.

Well done again Renato
