I guess they both come down to whether or not you're using a GUI.  In  
XMLMind, the extra typing required doesn't matter, and having  
explicit tags means that they appear on the drop-down list of  
available elements, which would be less intuitive if we had a generic  
tag, because the user would have to remember what the available  
options were.  I agree that were we typing the XML by hand, a generic  
tag element with attributes would make more sense.
