It does sound very interesting. How would it work? What would it look
like? I have tried doing this with XML Schema but gave up. I had tried
to use annotations to give weight to different things, then I tried to
make a type system. For me, it was just easier to write java to handle
it. Now I write org.xml.sax.ext.DefaultHandler2's that suit my needs. I
know, not very scalable or user friendly.
