An auxiliary grove is a grove constructed by processing other nodes in a
grove or groves. The sgml-parse function is not processing nodes but source
(non-grove) data to construct a new grove that is not an auxiliary grove.
Examples of auxiliary groves are architectural instance groves, groves
constructed by parsing character data into nodes (e.g., data tokenizer
groves as defined by the HyTime standard), etc.

So no joy there.
