This is a non-sequitur. Because LMNL has its own non-XML format does not 
mean it can't operate with standard XML syntax. LMNL is a data model, and 
XML syntax (or the modified "XML syntax only not well-formed" that 
constitutes Patrick's JITTs proposal, for that matter) could perfectly well 
be parsed into it. In fact, an XSLT transform works just fine to build an 
XML representation of a LMNL model out of arbitrary XML. It has three 
templates, none too complicated.

It's off-topic, I know, but I wanted to clarify the record for anyone 
tracking the various approaches to overlapping hierarchies.
