When you are starting the project, View Source is essential to get your 
head around the gist of the data. But how would you feel about an XML 
parser implementor who figured out how to implement XML only by 
examining instances and not by reading the productions in the spec? 
Surely you wouldn't accept that as an excuse for a broken XML parser or 
WSDL parser in an expensive application server or database server: "Oh, 
we didn't read the grammar/DTD."

That said, projects vary in their tolerance for misunderstanding.
