Details

When getting an xml datasource, xml parsing errors and other problems are just
dropped. This is both inconsistent with the way that we parse regular XML files
and it makes working with RDF harder than it should be.

On the other hand, I have no idea how much content relies on us being fine
with broken XML. Firefoxens update is just the most prominent example that comes 
to my mind.

All this should integrate smoothly with our datasource loading story, that is,
asynch calls probably want to add a notification callback.

Firefox's Live Bookmarks use the RDF parser for RSS 1.0, so it accepts and (partially, at least) uses not-well-formed RSS 1.0 while refusing not-well-formed RSS 2.0 and Atom.
