You're right that even validating parsers don't *have* to report it,
but it *is* an error.
RXP reports it. Eg for <!ELEMENT foo (A?, A?)>:
Warning: Content model for foo is not deterministic. At start of content
there are multiple choices when the next element is A.
I would be interested to know whether the validating parsers that
don't report an error correctly check the content of the corresponding
elements. They won't if they just build a finite-state machine in the
