Apologies for any lack of clarity.

The need is to find a name for (a) the element which sits inside 
profileDesc/creation and defines a related group of interventions in the 
document and (b) the attribute which can be attached to one or more 
elements, each of which represents a single such intervention, in order 
to associate them with the appropriate group

The original proposal was to use the word "stage" for both. When it was 
discovered that "stage" was already taken as an element name, in the 
interests of efficiency, we changed the element in the profile desc to 

We'd like to have the same name for both, if possible.

All clear now? I see you managed to vote before these ontological doubts 
overtook you, but if you want to do so again, feel free.
