XML 1.1 processors accepting XML 1.0 documents

I believe there is a slight inconsistency in the specification of the
behaviour on 1.0 documents:


2.8 Prolog and Document Type Declaration
says:
XML 1.1 processors SHOULD accept XML 1.0 documents as well. 

5.1 Validating and Non-Validating Processors
says:
XML 1.1 processors MUST be able to process both XML 1.0 and XML 1.1 documents. 


SHOULD or MUST?

David
