I'd hope for that anyway? A pragmatic document rather than ivory tower
E.g. informative sections quoting existing specs and how they might
be re-worded to make them more verifiable.

 And one way I can think

which is intended please?

<serm> Yes, I mean XML here. </serm>

I strongly disagree with this. Cart before the horse issues?
Give me a model, then we'll decide what its modelling?
It sounds wrong to me.

If a fairly concise model arises then perhaps an informative section
could add it for consideration, but I'm against a dfinitive schema
in an initial issue.

<serm> I agree with your disagreement Dave :). 'Yes' a conceptual model
using class diagram or E-R diagram to set a good context first. </serm>
