Correct, Expat is a non-validating parser.  But enforcing the use of
Expat is a hack because at the time only Expat would provide UTF-8
output.  Probably that hack is no longer necessary with Python 2.0,
since it could just feed a Unicode string to xmlproc, which is a
validating parser, and then convert to the desired output encoding. 
I'll add it to my stack of things to do.
