At the moment, the description of parseXML says [1]:

   Given a string and a Document object, parse the string as an XML document and
   return a Node representing it. If the XML in the string is not well-formed
   according to either XML 1.0 or XML 1.1 or not namespace-well-formed according
   to Namespaces in XML 1.1, this method must return a null value.

Note that an XML 1.0 document cannot be "namespace-well-formed according to 
Namespaces in XML 1.0".  Perhaps this prose means to require namespace 
well-formedness wrt to the relevant Namespaces specification (depending on the 
XML version)?
