{  authors: [
       {name: "Michael Kay", affiliation: "Saxonica"},
       {name: "Liam Quin", affiliation: "W3C"}
    abstract: <para { style : "bold" }>Here be some dragons</para>
    content: <section { numbers : [1,1,2] }><para>...</para></section>
   meta: [
     {dob: 1991-11-23T12:01Z ^^dateTime}
     {age: 23^^integer}
     {nick: Mike@en-UK}
