Re: XML "Smells"?

gsoap xml parser
some ideas :

due to XML itself :
-the physical structure of some XML constructs : notations, entities, 
cdata sections, and of course DTDs... DTDs are widely used, is that 
implies that most documents are smelling ?
-default attribute values

ambiguous documents :
-elements without namespace URIs

data model :
-parsing with a non-validating parser
-parsing with no support of namespace URIs

-using processing instructions
-using things that could be externalized from xml instances : i'm 
thinking about <!DOCTYPE> or xsi:schemaLocation ; as they apply to a 
document class, they have nothing to do inside an instance
