   Re: [xml-dev] Re: RDDL -- How would you design it?

| This defines a document type as a certain class. It does not define 
| the word class to have the meaning you claim. Nor does it indicate 
| how a namespace URI *is* a collection of documents. This definition 
| indicates that the words "Document Type" are a closer fit to this 
| definition than the word class.

All words have a context.  The context of this particular
word was fixed to the model presented.  In a similar way
some models use the word "Node".  There is no reason why
another word needs to be conjured up beacuse Node means
something else in a different context.  Taking the word
and divorcing it from its context and then saying that
the word does not work beacuse it has other meanings is
just being argumentitive.
