Isn't polymorphic behaviour from a single XML document actually 
Architectural Forms?

i.e. one can view the document from multiple processing perspectives 
by selecting the appropriate architectural form and associated architectural 

After the last discussion on AFs, I was left with the conclusion that 
one could address some (all?) of the type derivation requirements of 
XSD using an Architectural Forms based approach. Or more to put 
this another way, that AFs facilitate variations in schemas but still 
provide a validatable core.

Unfortunately I've just not had the time to either fully test this idea, 
or more formally write up that same discussion.
