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.
