I was talking about removing an error reporting requirement
because I believe XML WG went overboard with the error
reporting requirements which places a heavy burden on
the performance of XML parsers.

IMHO, HTML crowd got burnt badly with HTML's forgivable parsers
and over-reacted.  There are other ways to solve this sort of
problems without resorting to high tariff on all.
