Ah, then a generic markup design such as you showed us makes perfect
sense, but you're not going to get much leverage from validation (from
_any_ schema language. . .), at the generic level.

You would be able to get some leverage with RELAX NG or Schematron for
specific map types, as for examplet the phonebook you showed. . .
