There are very good reasons why organizations choose to exchange data in
XML, but all the benefits disappear if you start exchanging data in a format
which is a-bit-like-XML-but-not-quite.

If one party is sending invalid XML (or conversely, if one party is sending
valid XML and the other party is rejecting it), then you should ALWAYS fix
the component that is wrong, rather than introducing a compensatory bug at
the other end of the line.
