The word "valid" in XML

An SGML parser can be "validating" or "non-validating" -- non-validating parsers are not required to report any errors, but they must still read the DATA and produce the same output as validating parsers. XML does not allow conforming, non-validating parsers in the SGML sense (any parser without full error reporting is non-conforming), but the PR has used the term to mean something like "a DTD-driven parser with additional error-reporting requirements."
