I'm confused here: you seem to be saying that you don't think content models, or more generally formal grammars as defined by Chomsky, can express the constraint "bib should come before bub and anything else can occur in any order". Surely you can't believe that. Or do you really believe that partial ordering is an important enough design case that it deserves special syntactic support? -C. M. Sperberg-McQueen
