Do you want to know that it is exclusive canonical XML while
you know it's well-formed XML, or do you start with the assumption
that you don't know what it is at all (i.e. it might be total
garbage)? The former is quite a bit simpler than the later,
because it doesn't need a stack to track proper element nesting.
The later is still simpler than a general XML parser, even
if only a well-formed one.
