       Body:
Yes, it would be optional and entirely controlled by the library.

There are two cases under which XML is output: 

1) the parser can't find a tag library for the namespace of the tag.
2) the tag library doesn't find a tag for the element name and returns null to the parser.

In both cases, the parser creates a text script with the contents of the tag.

Each library has the option to, rather than return null, throw an exception (causing a parse
failure) or return a Tag that throws an exception at runtime (causing a runtime failure).

In fact, rather than having the parser create a text script when the tag lib returns a null
tag, the library itself could return a Tag that outputs the XML.

I'm actually just starting to use maven myself, what do maven users output as XML? Sorry to
be so naive.

Description:
Many tag libraries only have a strict number of tags defined. So default behaviour for these
libraries should be that if a typo is made on a tag name, then an exception is thrown.

Some libraries, like the Ant library, are more soft-coded and will try their best to instantiate
whatever they are given. However the default case is typically known at compile time.
