I think there's a difference to note here. You're outputting XML
from PHP, versus files having XML tags in the files ... I ran into a
problem with short tags not too long ago when a client transferred their
website to us. They had every single file starting with:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
When you have short_tags enabled, this causes problems. And
because we have other clients who have applications written using
short_tags, I had to redo all of those XML tags and make them:
<<??>?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
This is why personally I refuse to use short tags - I'd rather type
the whole thing out and not run into trouble later if for some reason I
have to move hosts. None of my new servers have short_tags turned on.
And anyone who asks is being told the same thing: type it out.

*PHP* files? I would have flagged that as the problem rather than disabling

Yeah, whoever created their site originally mixed XML/HTML/PHP all
in the same file (all the files were .html but contained xml and php
snippets) so I had to change their specific virtual host and then each
individual file ...

If they have no content, you should use <hr /> tags, otherwise use the
full open and close tags around the content. <title>CONTENT</title>
