That's precisely what I'm disagreeing with... I'm becoming
more & more convinced that inclusion and aggregation have so
much application-specific hair, and the cost of trying to 
model them generally is so high, that we should just kick
them out of the syntax and at the level of *interoperability*,
we should talk in terms of whole fully composed XML documents.
