Yes, but that has the same implication in most cases (other than DOM)
that the data model you pick will have requirements on xml names.

I'd rather not pick a model (for the spec) I'd just rather say that
whatever you understand by "result" of "xml parse" and "xml-er" parse.
then the result of an xml-er parse is equivalent to the result of an xml
parse on a possibly different input document. I realise this requires
some weasel words as "result" of an xml parse is not defined, but I
can't help the world we live in:-)
