Right, I'll add it.

More generally, this simple mechanism does validate only the
constructions that it "sees" in a sample document, not those that are
abstractly constructed.

It's possible to extend it like I have shown for the definition of the
occurrences, but then it would loose much of its simplicity and become a
classical schema language.
