True, but you need to divide the correctness question into two parts:

a) the parser accepts all well-formed/valid documents
b) the parser rejects all malformed/invalid documents

A parser that fails either of these is non-conforming; that said, you
probably care a lot more about (a) than (b) for light-weight clients.

All the best,
