I would say "yes". Section 4.5 doesn't say "equivalent", it
I may be missing something obvious, but why are we checking records against
each other again? Is there something wrong with choosing one or the other
and just running with it?
I can see that we want to strongly recommend that they be the same (to the
point of saying they MUST be) but should we force all parsers to check and
compare both? Would it be bad to just say "They must be identical.
Publisher assumes any risk for incorrect results if they are not identical.
Syntax checkers SHOULD check this, receiving parsers MAY check this"
