RE: [xml-dev] Best Practice: constrain an element's content by (1)a run-time selection of alternate types or (2) a run-time selection of childelements using an XPath expression?

Perhaps, but that's getting away from the issue. 

The issue is schema design not XML design.

Namely, should a schema be designed in which

- types are selected at run-time, or in which

- elements are selected at run-time using an XPath expression

What do you think?
