Re: deterministic content model?

I will say this --

I am writing a short report on why we should *not* have the 1-unambiguity
(or deterministic) constraint in content models -- I am arguing that it
buys you absolutely *nothing* -- you get the same "benefits" from other
features already present in schema languages. I will let the list members
know of the URL when it is ready.
