I see, sorry - I guess I missed the point a bit.  It seems to me you've 
outlined two alternative serialization schemes for lists of items: 
document serialization, or sequence serialization.  I'm not totally 
clear on all the contexts in which this might get used, but perhaps you 
could in some way leave it up to the "user" which behavior gets 
triggered.  IE, accepting that document-behavior won't roundtrip its 
child sequence structure might not be so terrible if in some way it were 
possible to detect the difference between an "implicit" document which 
is really just a stand-in for a sequence, and a "real" document.
