I hope this isn't supposed to be a description of using InnerXml since I have pointed out previously that it is NOT supposed to work "equally well" when the data is not kosher (where kosher is considered to be well-formed XML)

	First, consider this pattern:
	   foo.Bar = "some string" ;
	   foo.Bar = foo.Bar + "another string" ;
	If this idiom is possible, then it follows that that it is not worthwhile
	to validate the string being assigned as a "property", because you never
	know whether you're in the middle of some complex constructive process or
	at the end.  It works swimmingly as long as the "inputs" at any point are
	kosher, but it works *equally "well" when they are not*.
