Thanks Lance!

As Daniel noted, I added warnings to these additional property settings, 
but there are a couple of other places in the original JAXP 1.5 impl 
that did not have warning. I've added the warning message now (in 
ValidatorHandlerImpl.java and XMLReaderManager.java). Also, in 
ValidatorHandlerImpl.java, there was a redundant setting at line 677 
that would invalidate a 3rd party impl. This was a porting error when 
the patch was ported from jaxp standalone[1] to JDK.  It is now removed.

The fix is to catch SAXNotRecognizedException, print out a warning, and then continue as usual. The warning is for the developer in case he actually sets the new access* properties on the TransformerFactory but has a 3rd party parser on the classpath that does not support the new properties.
