The ifUnknown attribute gives behaviour for readers; dependsOn gives
behaviour hints for editors. If this element is not understood, then you
need to discard it if you change or discard any of the referenced
elements. Hmmm, perhaps it needs more metadata - what if you change a
child of a reference element? Etc.
Maybe the dependsOn stuff is too complex to try to capture, I'm not sure.
