Also, itemgroup doesn't allow itemgroup, which is something of a problem 
as well, since it means you can't implement this pattern:

   <content>{anything allowed as child of <p>}</content>
   <metadata>{specializations of <data></metadata>

In that since <content> must be a specialization of <itemgroup>, there's 
nothing for <wrapper> to be a specialization of since nothing allowed 
within <p> allows <itemgroup>.

So either itemgroup should be allowed to nest or we need another, more 
generic, wrapper base that <wrapper> in the above example could be a 
specialization of.
