Um, cut & paste. Perhaps you mean why? Because I've seen it flag
dangling references before and wanted to check my own sanity.

Oh, is that the point the REC is very clear on? ;-}
I apologize for that. Seriously, XercesJ is a very widely used parser

reinforce the notion that conformance issues are largely behind us.
