Hello Stuart,

I tried your solution and got it working. Thanks. So I will start creating 
some extension points. :)

It looks like the Apache Felix OSGI compendium implementation doesn't register 
this service, because org.osgi.util.xml.XMLParserActivator isn't registered. 
But this should probably be discussed on the Felix mailing list.
