Thanks for this information.  It seems this
decision to bundle Xalan in Java without changing its
classnames is going to complicate working with
XalanJ.  Given the track record of Xalan with
DocBook XSL, most people will need to upgrade their
Xalan at some point beyond the bundled version.  
It isn't hard, but you have to know how to do it.
