It is good idea to educate authors about the advantages of XML  
conformant content. It is also good, for mobile phones (and desktop  
GUI applications) to be rather forgiving about possible document  
structure issues. In particular, when document viewing apps deal with  
remote documents. For the Web to evolve and become more mobile  
friendly, is also a good thing.
