I've come to believe that documents are always of an infinite
number of types! So yes, I think you can easily say
foo.xml *conforms* to type specification A based on it's
foo.xml *conforms* to type specification B based on it's
foo.xml *conforms* to type specification C based on the
combination of it's elements and attributes.
The operative word is *conforms*... type is painted on
data by a set of assertions.
