I've given this a lot of thought, and reckon that I'm unclear what you
mean by "encourage", because my impression is that it will do just
that. Not explicitly via specification prose, but effectively, by
virtue of its error recovery goals.

Am I missing some important point about how you all anticipate XML-ER
being used perhaps?
