Not correct.  My thinking is that there is no such thing as SML
document.  There is only SML data and there is no assumption that
SML data is stored anywhere or finite in length.  If SML data is
stored in a file and it is used as a well-formed external entity
from an XML document, it can be processed using XML processors.

The production rule is something like:

   SMLData ::= (element | CharData)*
