Thanks for your endorsement, but XSV is not the gold standard -- as
the status page [1] makes clear, there are implementation gaps and
known bugs, to say nothing of unknown bugs.

There are invalid _as named group definitions_.  With named groups, we
had a choice:

 1) Allow min/max both on the reference and the definition;
 2) Allow min/max both only on the reference;
 3) Allow min/max both only on the definition.

We chose (2).  Sorry for the confusion.
