"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. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are ingenious.
