Currently, we map classes onto RELAXNG patterns directly.
And RELAXNG patterns are simply alternates (or interleaves).
So to support the a?,b?,c? notion in the RELAXNG modules,
I have to rewrite a fair amount of odd -> relax. But thats
my problem.

The real question is whether you also want to do the work
to make sure we can continue  support the extensibility
system whereby all model classes have an "x.model.foo"
pattern which can be filled in.
