Even as I was writing my "you shouldn't do this" comment, I knew it
wasn't completely valid. Telling somebody they can or can't use a
product in a certain way is always a debatable thing to do. I think what
upsets me is that:

1) Unqualified child elements strikes me as a bad practice, period, so I
don't want to do anything to encourage it.

2) Simon's solution needs to be applied carefully, since it has a very
real potential for name collisions.
