is a RELAXNG Compact version of the ASTM E2182 standard for names etc. 
suitable for use in healthcare documentation.

By 80/20 does that mean that you aim to be able to represent 80% of 
people's names? :-) It turns out that names etc. can get (slightly) 
complex if you aim to be able to represent *all* of them (as we did). If 
this syntax doesn't seem the simplest, its because *our* requirements, 
require the ability to represent *all* including international, names.
