If you've gone to all the trouble of parsing it, where is there then some 
sort of savings in then throwing it all away and reporting an error? You've 
already done the majority of the work.

I'm open to being pointed toward examples, but this strikes me as a very 
odd way of dealing with versioning, simply to avoid letting a member of a 
sub-set use the superset designation.

Your argument is beginning to sound like you just don't want any 
progression on XML, and therefore want to make it difficult to use any new 
version -- please correct me if that impression is wrong.
