My guess is this is just the way XSV reports stuff. Having already reported
an error with 'item' it doesn't report errors with the content of item
beause that content is implicitly in error. Or put another way; there is no
way for XSV to validate the content of 'item' because 'item' itself is

So yes, there is a problem with 'name' and 'town' but XSV can't tell you
anything about them because it didn't know what to do with 'item'

Hope this helps,
