For SML-IF purposes, is a vacuous document different than an empty document?

New text:

An SML-IF document MUST be a well-formed XML document [XML].

I tried coming up with wording based on Sandy's suggestion in comment# 1, but a
sentence such as "If no document is present, that document must be treated
as..." does not feel right. MSM's suggestion in comment# 2 seems cleaner.

New text is copied below:

If the model/*/document/data element has no child element, it is said to
contain a vacuous document. If the model/*/document/base64Data element has a
zero-length sequence of octets as its value, it similarly contains a vacuous
document. If the model/*/document/* element contains only a vacuous document,
then an SML-IF consumer MUST treat the document as if it is not part of the
interchange set.
