IMHO, the per context callbacks are fine.
The per thread callback for global errors can cause 
problems when a library (or  python module for instance)
is using libxml. Indeed when that library wants to catch 
global errors, it must register it's own handler, therefore 
overriding handlers that may haven been set by the main 
application or other libraries. 

  A lot of errors can occur outside of the context of parsing a
resource too. How do you handle them then ?

That's my point: the callbacks mechanism is fine
(and necessary) when you have a parser context, 
but I think we could benefit of a per thread getLastError
mechanism for errors not related to a parser context.

  Can you provide a concrete proposal ?
