i'm looking at the 9807 version of SWAP and ask why the data element in
messages is encoded as a list of name value pairs. why not just specify

<!ELEMENT swap (interfaces, ..., data?) >
<!ELEMENT data ANY >

and leave it to the respective processes to decide whether a list of pairs
suits them or whether a more structured encoding is better?
