The APT parser came first and is the canonical parser and it came  
from the Pixware folks. I would use it as your rule of thumb.

I would say parsing a document to an in memory model of a Sink and  
then validate that.

No, I don't think so. The confluence and twiki were done together,  
but the APT parser came first and was originally written by the first  
author of the framework. So I would say the APT parser is right.
