you put the rendition at the point of divergence. so a document level
rendition would obviously
override a schema-level one (like we used to do with DTDs)

no, not at all. What James and I wanted was a way to record a default
rendition of elements
within a given ODD customization, to provide a visualization in a TEI
formatting of the Guidelines was not in our minds at all, sorry if the

thats yet another subject, but I am not proposing it here. I am proposing
to include enough info in the ODD to generate various visualization
from a single source for a given customization.
