I've been learning a bit about SimpleXML today myself.  It seems that it
misses a lot of things when it comes to complex, or abnormal XML.  Abnormal
being what you're describing and whatnot.  I don't really have a solid
answer for you (Just noticed no one  responded), but I think you're running
into what I was...  Its just built to be Simple, not expand its mind.

Hope that helps!
