I very much agree! However, the XML specification explicitly forbids this.  
And we should try to follow the specifications, I think, otherwise it  
becomes a mess. Then again, maybe that already happened due to the other  
mobile browsers out there... One way forward would be defining a version  
of XML that has explicit error recovery rules for user agents to follow.  
(So that basically you can deterministically create an XML document from  
any string.)
