Yeah that sounds reasonable. My draft (I will get a dvcs.w3.org repository  
to put it in next week) does call out certain things as "parse error"  
similar to HTML's parser section. To what extent we do that and whether  
that should exactly match the rules of XML 1.0 is something we should  
determine along the way I think.
