That is not a strong-enough condition. Presumable all such marked sections
are contained in the base document element. The intent is that marked
sections must begin and end in the same parent element.


Proposed rewording (1) assuming no tag omission but EMPTY or #CONREF

    A.6 XML will not allow asynchronous marked sections -- any starttags in
    the marked section must have corresponding endtags in that marked section
    except that no endtags are present if the element declared content is
    EMPTY or a present attribute denoted #CONREF.

Above rewording can be simplified if no EMPTY declared content or
present attribute denoted #CONREF are permitted.

Proposed rewording (2)

    A.6 XML will not allow asynchronous marked sections -- any starttags in
    the marked section must have corresponding endtags in that marked section.

This allows mixed content marked sections.
