That is SGML minimization using a DTD as you say.
But no, it isn't XML. People doing this sort of
thing might want to use SGML given that the article
seems more concerned with how to use markup more
efficiently and that is quite a different problem
from the Mythical DePH Who Knows HTML, the unofficial
model for the XML user. IOW, the implementor would
figure out a different SGML subset and emphasize
efficiency rather than abusing XML. That would be
an interesting exercise.

Given a DTD you should be able to do that - it's just recovery rules.
I mean at any point in parsing you have a stack of elements the current
context is enclosed by. You find something invalid in the current context, so
loop around popping stuff of the stack until it's valid.
