It seems that this approach would require the parser to perform look ahead 
for the following content model:
( (A & B & C), C, C, C )

This content model would be transformed into: ( (A | B | C)*, C, C, C )

The transformed content model is non-deterministic. For example, the 
parser would have to look ahead when parsing the first C in the following 
    C B A C C C

The original content model is deterministic; the parser would not have to
look ahead to determine that the first C (in C B A C C C) matches 
the (A & B & C) portion of the original content model.
