Yes it can be expressed in WF XML, but internal subset stuff disappears
to Tumbolia  in XML processing chain/workflows.

Four alternatives I see:
         Don't use internal subsets

         Use internal subsets and live with the fact they they don't 
survive processing pipelines

         Make the internal subsets round-trip by using a sufficiently rich 
and complex

         Write monolithic XML processing programs
