No, it’s not about USPS being destroyed deliberately, this time:

Error: Unable to validate the XML document: INPUT
INPUT: Line 44: Element postal content does not follow the DTD, expecting (street+ , (city | region | code | country)*), got (city code country )

Locally, xml2rfc has no problem processing this document, but the submission failed anyway.
Apparently, the validator employed in the submission tool insists on there being a street (and that not being empty!?) in a postal element.

Has anybody else ran into this inconsistency?
