Yes, I have no problems with this. There are many ways we could
render the bits that are added for forms sake, rather than to make
a real example (could colour them grey if they are not supposed
to be real, for instance, instead of collapsing, or put them in 6pt writing).

I just did a pass over some of the easier errors and fixed them.

Worst I found was this:

     <title>Proceedings of a workshop on corpus resources</title>
       <resp>Programme Organizer</resp>
       <name>Geoffrey Leech</name>
     <meeting>DTI Speech and Language Technology Club meeting, 3-4
     January 1990, Wadham College, Oxford</meeting>

which looks entirely plausible, but is not - <imprint> is mandatory for

As it stands, that is genuinely misleading for a reader.
