Re: [xml-dev] Use xsd to specify multiple instances of existing element

Rather than extend from an abstract type, I think it's better to
restrict from a loose type...  I think it benefits the validator in
some way that I can't remember (that's suitably vague and
non-committal :)  Hopefully someone who knows can back that up.

...in XSD 1.0.  It's perfectly possible 1.1 isn't it?

I think the XSD 1.1 license for Saxon is 30 quid, that's a round of
drinks in London....
