The text at line 615 of draft 11 suggests that multiple usages may be
specified via XML list semantics.

I think there is a more fundamental problem with the attribute as
specified. I don't understand why the usage attribute is typed as a
QName. My expectation would be that it be specified as a URI. Can
someone give my an example usage and its QName?
