Write the C struct that corresponds to that snippet; you can't.  That 
snippet can fully define a piece of XML, but it doesn't fully define a 
data model.  Perhaps that's our disconnect:  I assume that your 
requirements for a data model including mapping it into a conventional 
programming language.  If you're satisfied with not being able to map 
that snippet into a language, then we're closer than we appear.
