The reqsons it is this way is because the wg expressed the (admittedly
rather vague) desire that old skool <surface> (for digital facsimile)
and new skool (for genetic flummery) should have only limited co-existence.
My vote would be to do the P4 thing -- i.e. just alternate the whole lot
and sort out any nonsense that surfaces later with schematron rules.
