I think Henry Thompson knows my disagreement very well --
Unique Particle Attribution as in XML Schema is *very* restrictive --
Annotations and key/keyref/unique declarations require, if any,
unambiguous grammars.
I think we are *totally* screwing up document processing with these
I think we do not have an obvious solution here -- so we should work
harder to get a solution, and not push forward one possible solution which
has several negative points without analyzing all solutions.
