Yes, this is what I was saying.  I have little experience with SGML 
(unlike most of this group, it appears), so I was unaware of this 
feature.  I guess the ability to implement the above was not included 
in the XML specification in order to keep with the working group's 
goal of making XML relatively simple and accessible.

Thanks for your additional points.
