<relationGrp> is a member of model.biblLike, as is <listRelation> which 
has now replaced it. This means it is available as part of 
macro.paraContent as well as other places referencing model.bibLike in 
their content. I am not convinced that this is a good thing.

<relation> is not a member of any class, so it will only be available 
where it is specifically named in a content model, i.e. within the 
various list{Event|Org|Person|Nym} elements (which probably should 
constitute a class, but don't at present). listRelation is also 
available in those same places. This seems correct to me.
