The above appears to be illegal RDF - a propertyElt may only have content
if it has an ID and/or parseType attribute.  However, SiRPAC doesn't
throw an error so I filed this as FEB-21-2001-4.

Yes a warning would be a good idea but it's certainly legal
according to the spec.  I believe the container doc by Brian and
Dave address this issue but I get a Not Found error when I try to
access their doc:

as documented in:
