Hmm, rather depends on what you mean by "parallel"... if you mean 
"similarly generates a warning", then yes, but ontologically I think 
these cases are completely different. The incomplete skeletal examples, 
I continue to think, are not examples but schemata; there's no way they 
can be made valid without completing them. This one is (if you like) 
"feasibly" valid because an appropriately configured validator would 
recognise it as valid as it stands, though our validator doesn't.
