I've read the changes and agree.  I'm still a bit uneasy with the following two 
items, but I'm willing to agree to whatever the list decides, including leaving 
them as they are:

1) If an attribute type is not declared, it is assumed to be CDATA.  I lean 
toward explicitness.

2) A Choice or Seq must have two or more elements.  This makes logical sense, 
but I'm still a bit afraid that people will commonly include only a single 
element and that we ought to allow it.  Perhaps it's due to one of my mother's 
favorite sayings: "We got vanilla [ice cream].  Waddya want?"

My Web site now points to John's.
