If you want to eliminate or prune elements prior to processing, you can
write your own XMLFilter (SAX2) and assign it to your SAXBuilder before
you build your Document.

XMLFilter filter = new MyFilter();
Document doc = builder.build(in);

Check out the samples in jdom/samples/sax.

Writing an XMLFilter is a little easier than writing your own SAX
handler, and you'll be able to use the standard JDOM API.
