Some weeks ago, I raise the question if any well formed XML document can
be "upgraded" to a valid XML document. Occasionally I was misunderstood
to raise the question on good or bad DTDs.

So I want to raise the question again with a simple example:

   <empty, x="foo"/>
   <empty, x="bar">now empty is not empty</empty>

Is this fragment part of a well formed document?
