I don't know about W3C schemas, but the XML spec is not at all clear
that a non-deterministic content model in a DTD is an error. Indeed some
versions of Xerces have not so flagged it.
Section E of the spec is classified as non-normative, and even that only
says "XML processors built using SGML systems may flag non-deterministic
content models as errors." It does not say they are required to do so.
And what about XML processors not built on top of SGML systems?
