That is a quoted string, ergo not an XML element.

I'm not sure whether those quotation marks are metalanguage or not.
If they are part of the syntax, then yes, you have a problem; stuff
in quotes should always be a literal string.  Otherwise, there is no
possibility of confusion between these:

   {"foo": "<bar/>"}    -- value is a string; JSON or JAXON
   {"foo": <bar/>}      -- value is an XML element; JAXON only
