Fair enough, but is <FIG TEXT="alternate text"/> really any worse?

So can I, but I don't think it's necessary for AF:NG 1.0 to
declare victory, especially if the architectural validator is
RELAX NG, with its ability to treat attributes and child elements

foo = (attribute foo {xsd:integer} | element foo {xsd:integer}

can be added to the content model of an element, allowing it
to have either the attribute or the child element but not both.
