See erratum E34 (http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-19980210-errata#E34) which
applies to this section.

The idea is that it can't be a well-formedness constraint if not all
processors would see the error, and those that read the external
subset would think it was perfectly good.

It's invalid because it is not, as it claims, standalone.

You might think that this is a bit odd, and I wouldn't disagree with
