Back to "the only way to get sane behavior is to rely on
non-standard extensions" evil.   Chthulu is pleased!

On the other hand, if the XInclude spec said that you needed
to substitute <xi:error code="..."/.>, rather than content found
in the document, it'd at least start to make technical sense as
a processor-neutral way to report errors ... even though it would
still be polluting the data content of the document.  One could
imagine statements that documents with xi:error elements
have no canonical form.
