As I said above, "errors should be caught and handled during the
authoring process and by the CMS". That is clearly just a case of the
CMS not doing it's job properly and a broken implementation doesn't mean
the language is broken.
The nature of XML requires that both the client and publishing tool
enforce well-formedness, not just one or the other. If your CMS isn't
up to the job, then you shouldn't even attempt to maintain a well formed
document that accepts input from external sources.
I agree with Henri's comment about using ad hoc print statements, rather
than a true XML tool that guarentees well formed output.
