I think we are examining the bark on the trees and not seeing the forest. How you define the NAME element is up to you, depending on your needs. The point was to use a naming convention that meaningfully describes the data being encapsulated, rather than to describe aspects of their presentation.

The last point in my original post was that it may be a good idea to have a utility NAME.dtd that the main dtd references for desribing names so that how a NAME is defined in a given instance can be changed to an appropriate model depending on the needs at the time.
