(cc'ing batik-dev)

If I interpret this correctly, Batik uses the following entry in
XMLResourceDescriptor.properties to instantiate a parser in
SAXDocumentFactory through the SAX XMLReaderFactory:

org.xml.sax.driver = org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser

There's no Xerces-dependency in Java code, only SAX. Neither does the
PDFTranscoder use Xerces-specific functionality.

This should probably be improved in Batik.
