Or nodes in a subtree of the same grove... in fact as I develop the XSet
property set description of XML 1.0, the "constraints" labelled "well-formed
constraint" or "validity constraint" are often expressable as an XPath
expression ala Schematron, so indeed these constraints would map to a
Schematron subtree on the property set. These constraints turn out to be by
*far* the most difficult part of XSet which was otherwise straightforward
given the existence of the EBNF productions in XML 1.0.
