The error that is visibly printed out by (say) the command-line client
is not XML. It's just an error.

I'm not saying that we definitely can't change it, I'm just saying
it's not XML. (Similar bitstrings may have existed in an XML stream
somewhere along the way, somehow causally related to the error the
user sees before them, but that's an implementation detail.)
