Every well-formed MicroXML document is a well-formed XML document.
Therefore, MicroXML is parsable into XDM under the same circumstances
as full XML, namely that it must also be namespace-valid.

The only difference is the treatment of line endings inside attribute
values, which are left alone in MicroXML and converted into spaces in
full XML.
