Just a hint: MUCH easier to read and write RNG using the compact syntax.

Here's an example of validation of child elements conditioned on an 

start = element doc { foo | bar }

foo = attribute type { "foo" }, element x { text }+
bar = attribute type { "bar" }, element y { text }+

This would be valid:

<doc type="foo">

.. this would not be valid:

<doc type="foo">

Note: you can't do this with XML Schema, and there are some limitations 
even within RNG (you cannot condition validation on an attribute and 
have interleave patterns within that pattern).
