Well, I'm sure that I checked this out when I coded my sitemap generator but I just double checked...
The Sitemap must:
* Begin with an opening <urlset> tag and end with a closing </urlset> tag.
* Specify the namespace (protocol standard) within the <urlset> tag.
* Include a <url> entry for each URL, as a parent XML tag.
* Include a <loc> child entry for each <url> parent tag.
All other tags are optional.
I've had these sitemaps for a year or two, they've worked fine.
