The question is not entirely clear to me, but if you're looking for markup strategies used to represent non-hierarchical structures (or structures with multiple overlapping hierarchies predicated upon multiple analytical perspectives) you may want to look at hints in: http://www.oasis-open.org/cover/topics.html#hierarchy "SGML/XML and (Non-) Hierarchy" The TEI teams in particular have dealt with this problem, since the encoding of text for literary and linguistic features often forces one to reckon with four or five "concurrent" hierarchies -- and SGML/XML (sans CONCUR) forces you to choose. The dogma of SGML changed somewhere along the line from a simplistic OHCO model ("ordered hierarchy of content objects") to something like "non-hierarchy / multiple-hierarchy is the rule rather than the exception".
