I hate to get into syntax fights, but...

It says "v is the resource whose identifier is given by the resource
attribute of E". This would seem to apply that if there is no resource
attribute (i.e. contains no XML markup) then it follows the following

According to your claim (following sentences do not apply), the spec would
not specify what to do in such a case, so then anything would be valid.
