IMHO, an element defaulting scheme should be flexible enough to allow
element defaulting in any number of occurrences and level of nesting.
The above, although useful, is not flexible; It is more appropriate to
design something complete from the ground up instead of compatible
workarounds that wont do later on.

Also IMHO, the semantics of a defaulting scheme should be a separate
group of semantics in a schema language otherwise it gets difficult to
follow and maintain/reuse. Something like the attribute-set, or maybe a
default-type where it's definition includes or references any
combination of complex and simple types.
