It is already a source of much consternation that XSD is not a single focused spec but instead dabbles poorly in co-occurence constraints then carries around infoset augmentations like default values. I'd hate to see it become an even more bloated, jack-of-all-trades spec by having it support sopmething similar to entities. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM When in doubt, ignore it.
