I didn't know this tool:

# xmllint hosts.xml
hosts.xml:28: parser error : expected '>'

# xmllint /tmp/empty
/tmp/empty:1: parser error : Document is empty

/tmp/empty:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found


And for "<package> tag found outside of <packages> context" error we 
would get:

# xmllint firefox.xml
firefox.xml:22: parser error : expected '>'
firefox.xml:23: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: packages 
line 3 and package
