The structure handler is specifically to receive events during the SAX
creation of the FO Tree so I don't see a need to have an interface and
the class with empty methods would be needed anyway.

So for the target format:
(side note: this would be consistent with the morphos)
- mime type
- data output: output stream, objects

Apart from that we'll see what develops.
