I like this option, so long as the receiving entity also sends a descriptive
error
message to the sending entity.

PS I am developing an xml parser in java which works on byte buffers instead
of streams, but uses the java 1.6 / java EE  javax.xml.stream XMLEvent
interface so that it can more easily interoperate with other xml tools.
This
makes it easier to work with non-blocking io for a server, but also
unfortunately seemed
to require a dedicated xml parser.  Minimizing the required work for that
parser
is what originally triggered the question, but I'm more concerned about
being
very clear with respect to what  happens to message  content.
