Actually, I'd agree. minOccurs is usually good enough for
my purposes, except I've found myself littering schemas with
nillable="true" against each minOccurs="0" simply because some
tools insist on sending xsi:nil regardless.

I had to teach third line support from one notable vendor how
to read the spec before they conceded that this behaviour was
indeed a bug.
