It would be nice to have a feature like you describe. Unfortunately,
that isn't what strictinsert=True does. (Well, it does check for
fragment well-formedness in XML mode, at least.)
While the name "strictinsert" is reasonable for such a feature, I
don't think we'd want to re-purpose the name. That should probably be
kept, but the implementation should simply assert that strictinsert is
false. New options would need to be added for new features.
