No, it is neither.  

XML has explicit delimiters to clearly mark up processing instructions.
You are using them for what they are intended.

A different take on the issue is this. The SGML/XML model is
elements/entities(e.g. resources)/processing instructions.
XML piggybacks everything on top of element structure.

This is distinct from, e.g., PDF which piggybacks element
structure (such as it has) on top of processing.
