Well, yes. This is pretty similar to the technique used at Edinburgh
described in that Thompson & McKelvie paper to which I provided a
pointer a while back. They used a kludge based on the TEI extended
pointer syntax back then, and put the attrs on the element, rather
than in a special element inside it, but same idea.

I'm hoping to have one, but in the multiple-hierarchy chapter, NH.
