In some respects, it is shorthand, e.g.:

? is <optional> is minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1"

but you can't say a min of 9 occurrences with a max of 12 in RELAX NG; you
can in XML Schema with minOccurs="9"/maxOccurs="12". However, M-N
constraints are on the official docket for RELAX NG as a separate spec.
