Would it be possible to make a package protected non-verifying 
subclass of Text in org.jdom.input that could be used by SAXBuilder, 
etc? To everything outside the org.jdom.input package this would just 
be a Text object. Is it possible to subclass a public class with a 
non-public class? Even if it has to be public, such a class still 
might make sense.

Also, keep in mind that not all parsers make all the checks they're 
supposed to. For instance, AElfred will not catch some illegal 
characters in names.
