Ah, ok! I knew my mind would finally dislodge:  I got a start on a 
different thread but still knew it wasn't going in the right direction...

Actually, this is not well-formed. To be well-formed it has to match the 
document production  (rule 1 [1]). We are using rule 43 for content (which 
actually has the term "balanced" associated with it from the XML Fragment 
Interchange spec [2]).

[2] http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/CR-xml-fragment-20010212

The text now reads (new revision: 1.105):

( Note: If the Type is "content" the plaintext resulting from decryption 
may not be well formed if (a) the original plaintext was not well formed 
(e.g., PCDATA by itself is not well formed), or (b) the EncryptedData 
element was the root element of a document that was decrypted.)
