Unfortunately, in my experience, the AF approach is simple, elegant
and wrong.

The differences between real world schemata I find
myself working to converge for interchange/processing are orders of
magnitude beyond mere element type name mapping
and attribute suppression.

I have no problem with AFs as a mapping mechanism  -
especially pipeline enabled such as you are envisaging
with AFNG. My problem is that people can read too much
into what you get with a mapping mechanism such as AF.
