I am wondering if it would even be good to have this option of creating
invalid XML. In Java many things like messing with pointers is simply
not possible and I don't think it's a worse language for that. Rather
the opposite, the code has less hard-to-find bugs and is more readable.
Now, this is just my personal opinion, I really don't want to start a
language holy war, it is just meant as an example for our world: do we
really want people to create invalid XML? Or should we "gently force"
them to things right?
