The grammar in the spec only permits the first of these.  The two
cases appear equivalent, and there's no obvious reason why the latter
isn't permitted (but I suspect it makes life easier for parsers if
they know immediately that it's a mixed content model).

BTW, did you really expect Jade to spot an XML constraint when you
didn't use the -wxml argument?
