[tei-council] FR nuncles: new element tei:objectType

The first thing we need is a <elementSpec> for the new element. Take one 
of the existing ones (Specs/material.xml in this case probably) and hack 
it, is what I usually do.

That will also involve creating some usage examples, thinking about its 
class memberships, attributes etc.

Then I would create a skeleton ODD file in which my new element spec is 
added to the existing structure and see whether the schemas generated 
make sense. In my skeleton ODD file I'd start adding some prose to 
further explain how the new element is meant to be used, and expatiating 
on the examples a bit.

The genetic.xml document is an example of this process in action, though 
on a rather broader scale than is needed here.
