[tei-council] notated music

I don't want to block this, but I do think we might be doing several 
things at once here. There seem to be three distinct issues:

1. The need for an <externalObject> (or whatever) which is specifically 
designated as a transclusion element.

2. The need for a container element whose content elements are deemed to 
be not choices exactly but somehow parallel renderings in different 
formats of the same content (an image of notated music, an XML rendering 
of it, an MP3 file of the music). This contrasts with <choice>, which 
apparently assumes that one of its content elements will be chosen in 
any given context.

3. The need for <notatedMusic>, which is semantic sugar for 
<aboveContainer type="notatedMusic">.

If my understanding above is correct, then I think it would be better to 
make three separate feature requests, and deal with #2 before #3. Or am 
I missing something?
