Attributes cannot describe structured content.
So we modelize structured attributes with subelements.
Unfortunately these "structured attributes as subelements" mix with
the subelements that represent
the relationships between the resources.

Let's consider this idea of more powerful attributes:

an element could now be really separated in two parts:
 - its XML attributes describing all the attributes of the resource
 - its sub-elements that REALLY correspond to the relationship it has
with other resources

I think it would REALLY make things clearer.
