We didn't want to use jaxp because we don't need it. Users can easily use 
jaxp if they want to specify the XML parser to use in batik.

TrAX is mainly designed for XSLT engines. The transcoder module does not 
transform SVG to XML but provide a generic API to transform SVG to raster 
images for example.
