Yes, it is too much to ask.
Your SML data may be well-formed by some idea you have of
the meaning of the term, but the XML spec has a different,
more precise definition of "well-formed". A
conforming XML processor is required to reject a
document with illegal element names. That document
is, therefore, not XML.
"Close" isn't good enough.
