That would have the great virtue of being consistent with the rest of 
the Guidelines!

And I strongly support Sebastian's objection to the use of a non-typed 
<ptr> here.

So I would change this to

  <figure n="3"><head>SCHUBERT: Symphony in B minor.</head>
<ptr type="transclude" target="example_schubert.xml"/>

However -- does this example really mean that the whole of Schubert's 
symphony is to be included at this point? if not, I would suggest 
changing the content of the <head> to something like "Extract from 
Schubert's B minor symphony"
