The solution outlined above does not work properly afterall.
Unfortunately the &passwordmysql; token has a trailing newline
character. That character is not in the original file, it must be an
artifact from including the file.

Next I tried to inlude the entire line, including the <Password> tags.
Unfortunately that doesn't work at all:

It appears the validation does not understand this way of nesting
