Advantages of my proposal are very significant, while your concern is merely for consistency.

One of them requires whole-sale reengineering and I will write more about it in a different thread. This mail covers the other answer (which is not my favorite). We have already prohibited <zeroOrMore> <group> <attribute><anyName/></attribute> </group> </zeroOrMore> but have allowed <zeroOrMore> <attribute><anyName/></attribute> </zeroOrMore> In other words, we already have "incosistency". Why bother? Cheers, Makoto
