I'll make the change.  I think this opens up XSchema dramatically, making 
possible and eventually compatible the currently-proposed nested model, Paul's 
rule based model, and several of the ideas I've seen for re-creating parameter 

The key in my mind remains making the declarations referenceable; the rest we 
can handle in successive specifications as needed.  I think we have a great 
start here.
