I'm not aware of non fatal errors being reported but I do see instances 
of non fatal errors being silently ignored or (equivalently from 
observable behaviour) not detected.




value of xml:space other than "default" and "preserve". It is an error 
for other values to be specified; the XML processor MAY report the error 
or MAY recover by ignoring the attribute specification or by reporting 
the (erroneous) value to the application.

and rxp for example silently accepts this:

$ rxp x.xml
<x xml:space="wibble"/>

xml:space being one of the few instances of "an error" (rather than "a 
fatal error") in the spec.
