I recognise that, but I still feel it is the more general solutions and
fits more with the way TEI tends to do something. Ok, *I* might add a
schematron rule that insists that last point be the same as the first..
and in fact I think that would be a good example to have available to
the community...but in my old age I get worried about nailing things
down too tight.
