Ok, and is not confusing that when a novice send you a mathml fragment,
you would say

"yes as I said, in my corrected messgage, the dtd won't flag this as an
error by default so it is valid in the technical definition of valid as
defined by XML. That doesn't mean however that it isn't an error as MathML."

Whereas the MathML validator A will say it "The input is valid MathML" and
the B will say it "This Page Is Valid MathML 2.0!".

Then the guy got confused and read the MathML specification and there
explicitely it is said that their code is _prohibited_.

I am not interested in technical details or if the validators are strictly
following the XML spec or are not.

I am noticing that this may be cause of problems, is not?
