because that's equivalent to a json object with a repeated field name 
which isn't allowed there either.

<foo value="bar spam"/>

is allowed, and xsd or relax would allow you to type that automatically 
to have it parsed as a list if you want. Which is the equivalent of
the json you showed.  As white space is used as the separator for XSD 
lists, you'd need to quote white space in values, but that's no 
different to having to quote , and " which are the separators in json.
