No, in UTF-8+names, &lt; isn't a predefined replacement - remember, it 
knows about the ones from HTML & MathML, but not the XML magic five; so 
these two docs are entirely different.  The second one would be accepted 
by an XML processor.

I think so.  Which probably means the documentation has to be clearer 
about this.
