[whatwg] Getting .innerHTML in XML well-formedness issues

The spec says that getting .innerHTML in XML must return a
namespace-well-formed XML representation of the element or document.  But
what should happen when the DOM isn't namespace-well-formed and it can't be
fixed by namespace prefix rewriting?
E.g., when the DOM contains any of the following?:
* A ProcessingInstruction node containing ?>
* A Comment node containing -- (or ending with -)
* A CDATASection node containing ]]>
DOM3 Core says that they "must generate a fatal error during serialization"
(or, for the CDATA case, "the cdata section must be splitted before the
serialization"). Does that mean raise a SYNTAX_ERR exception?
What about when there are illegal characters? Or colons in local names or
processing instruction targets? A processing instruction with the target
"xml" (in any case combination)?
