This is strictly for use in MS Desc, right? not intended as a general purpose
<object> parallel to <name>, for instance? the sentence "that is it is 
more flexible way to handle descriptions of objects in running prose
(usually in the section), which allows multiple objects for a single text," 
is confusing me a  bit.

but assuming so, then the name bothers me. In the example given:

   <support> <material>Parchment<material> <objectType>roll<objectType> with
   <material>silk</material> <objectType>ribbons<objectType>

the <objectType> really looks weird to my eyes. I think, "why not <materialType>?"

<form> might be better. but dict hijacked that.

I'd stick with <object> meself.
