What if I did this with attributes instead of elements?  (I wouldn't
change to attributes just to get the behavior I want; I am considering
using attributes anyway.)  Since attributes cannot be repeated anyway,
I'm thinking that the

      <attribute ... />
      <attribute ... />

pattern will do what I want.  With elements, the problem was that the
pattern itself doesn't prevent repetition of any given element.  Here
I'm taking advantage of the built-in restriction on non-duplication
of attributes to get my desired restriction.

I'm testing this now, but would like to know, *should* I expect this
to work?
