I'm trying to iterpret this interesting theory thread in the light of
existing validation technologies.
Taking the chess moves interpretation, the ambigous model above can be
implemented in Schematron as:
>The game must start with a white move.</sch:assert>
<sch:assert test="count(*) = count(white) + count(black)"
>The game may contain only black and white moves.</sch:assert>
>White moves must alternate with black moves.</sch:assert>
>Black moves must alternate with white moves.</sch:assert>
Is it equally simple to implement this ambiguous model in other schema
