Ouch!  That's a mistake, really.  I meant to copy W3C XML Schema, but I  
also deal with XMI (XML for UML) where both the terms "descriptions" and  
"documentation" get used, and clearly I mixed them up when putting  
together the genericode Schema.  Oh well, it isn't worth changing at this  
late stage.

My only comment, in looking at the example, is to ask whether "MetaData"  
is a good choice for an element name.  My experience of late is that I get  
a very negative reaction from people when I talk about "metadata".  It's  
too widely misunderstood, and in particular people understand it to mean  
too many different things.  In genericode, the corresponding element is  
called "Identification", and that wouldn't seem to be a bad name here, as  
the metadata seems to mostly be identifying metadata.

Cheers, Tony.
