--- Comment #1 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
>I would challenge that in this case the error can be ignored, because the xsl:copy is shallow-copying the <root> element. To complete that copy it needs to read through to the end.

Why? To shallow-copy an element you only need to know the name of the element.
Shallow-copy doesn't (intrinsically) depend on the content of the element or on
anything found in its end-tag.

>I am wondering if we can make this more interoperable. For instance by requiring an option to at least [read] through to the end.

I'm reluctant. It's an intrinsic property of functional languages that you
don't read more input than is needed to compute the output. If the user wants a
complete well-formedness or validity check then they can always add one to the
processing pipeline.
