Yes, I know, but currently I haven't seen an algorithm for fixup that
doesn't parse the input, so I'm not sure how to spec a fixup process
that produces a well formed XML document that doesn't first produce a
tree (as in the current draft more or less) then serialise it.

Is there a syntax level transformation that could be specified that goes
from an xml-er document to an xml document without first building a tree
and then serialising (at least conceptually, implementations may
pipeline this to start serialising the result before the tree is fully 
built as is common in xslt).
