    Exactly. This parse tree content based classification (especially
"both") is equally interesting for me as is validation vs. non-validation.
Generation of validation error messages is something the *user* of the
document decides the importance of while the content of a document is
something the *author* is concerned with. Default attributes and entity
expansions look alot like content to me.
