We noted that the current XML spec only makes the existence
of a # sign (fragment identifier) an error.  It makes nothing
else an error.  We were just trying to make clear that the
same set of error conditions continued to be true.  In particular,
there is no need for an XML processor to check the syntax of
a system literal beyond the "no fragment identifier" restriction
since no such restriction currently exists in the XML 1.{0|1)
Recommendation.

Do you disagree with that assessment?
