and I don't think anyone had much of an issue with doing this
(http://www.tei-c.org/Talks/2006/OUCS/exercise-roma.pdf). Interestingly,
the question was "why do we bother? why not just use tei-all?", to
which I had no real answer. Arguments in favour of a subset come down
to making editing work faster, and making sure you stick to your own
rules. If neither of those bothers you, you might as well have the
whole shebang.
