Yes, I am hoping for more detail. The problem is that this defines an 
XML element (for example). However, a little later we see: "There is 
an element information item for each element appearing in the XML 
document." I don't see anything that ties the definition of an 
element in real XML to the definition of an element information item 
in a synthetic information set. The connection is one way. An element 
produces an element information item but an element information item 
does not produce an element.
