On another point, you have said a couple of times that ASN.1 doesn't 
provide anything like XSD's 'all'.

Why do you say that? Is it just a matter of notation? 'all' isn't 
anything but a variable-order sequence with possibly optional elements. 
Is it that the ASN.1 corollaries don't allow optional elements?

I can see why ASN.1 might not offer the equivalent of RELAX NG's shuffle 
(which it calls interleave) or SGML's variable-order sequence with 
optional and repeating elements (which it calls interleave), but not 
little old 'all'.
