I assume Otávio is looking to contribute the changes to OpenJDK rather 
than the defunct JAXP project. But perhaps your concern is changing the 
Xerces and Xalan code so that it diverges from the upstream sources? I 
assume there isn't any issue with switching the JAXP API and other 
non-Apache code to use StringBuilder.
