I say it again. For tools, etc. this is just fine. But for certain  
types of enduser applications, it should be relaxed. This would make  
sense and, as mentioned before, it is already widely implemented this  
way. Ideally, apps would show a little warning, somewhere, if  
processed documents are not valid XML (but insist they are).
