How about this now bases a generalized processing model on XML Schema's
notion of types -- something that has proven to be quite controversial, and
has *not* proven itself to be a generalized-enough foundation for very
general XML architectures. In fact, it has been proven that XML Schema types
cannot adequately model all possible XML structures, so you've just
constrained this approach to be restricted to only a subset of possible

DOCTYPEs have their own problems, but they are already there in the
foundation of XML, so we have to contend with them.

I have a big problem with basing this on XML Schema types.
