Yeah, it's ugly. The claim that a document is WF if it conforms
to the production "document" appears in clause 2.1 and is repeated
in clause 4.3.2, but is not as such a WFC, and clause 1.2 claims
only that violations of WFCs are said to be errors. So technically a
though not WF, is not "in error", since neither "error" nor "must"
is anywhere applied to what is wrong with it.
