It probably shouldn't (be an error).

No it shouldn't.  Neither does it locally with nsgmls, nor while uploading  
to the W3C validation service.  A validating SGML system does not know or  
care about whatever you put into processing instructions (in an otherwise  
valid context).  For specific problems, provide a specific test case.
