So what does the following statement mean then?  

"One can do validation in the writer and then plausibly skip the sort of
checks you mention in a reader, and still be talking about XML, even
with today's textual interchange formats."

Sounds like you are claiming that XML parsers (e.g. the stuff that XML
web service end points or RSS aggregators use to consume XML coming from
arbitrary and sometimes malicious sources) should skip well-formedness &
validity tests since they can trust the writers. 

It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are ingenious.
