Say you've got a schema that says an element representing data for a month
must have at most 31 children, and you decide you want to be a bit more
precise and say it must be 30 for some months and 31 for others and
occasionally 28 or 29. Does this refinement mean you are doing something of
a fundamentally different nature? I think not. It does mean that you've
crossed the limits of what can be done with a grammar-based approach, but
surely we should make it as easy and seamless for people to cross that
boundary as we can?
