Concerning validation, in section 3 it states:
    An element is valid if there is a declaration matching
    elementdecl where the Name matches the element type

and also:
    The declaration matches ANY, and the types of all child
    elements have been declared. 

Isn't the second condition redundant. If a child element has not been
declared then the validity violation will be caught the first statement.
Which is to say, if a child has not been declared, then when the
child element's text is being parsed, its lack of declaration will be 
caught by a validating parser at that point and there is no need to 
check for this at the parent element level.
