I'm happy to draft a chapter, then spread it around the council for comment,
correct and then pass to TEI-L, if the council desires. (But am happy if
someone else wishes to do this.)

When you make foo a member of model.dateLike, then it is an irreversible change,
and should no longer be equiv'ed. Thus it becomes tei-ext:foo.

Or a pure subset of the existing content model and class membership. I.e. if
foo is only available in less places or only has a further constrained content
model, then it should be equiv'ed. If not, it is irreversible, and so not a
renaming but a new element.
