Back to square one 1 ! Its  not so simple.
Where is it defined what is the "output of an xml parser" ?
If we don't have that we can't guarantee an xml-er parser is equivalent to it.
Suggestion: we say at an XML-ER parser produces an abstract data model ... then its up to which one ... INFOSET ? XDM ? ... Probably INFOSET as XDM drops several artifacts of XML that might be useful to upstream parser .
But then that does exclude cases such as supporting invalid XML unicode codepoints.

But then I havent read the INFOSET specs in years so I am going on old man braincells here ...
