Hi Richard, 

We have not thought out the whole thing. But when re-writing the "implementation" sections (describing what exactly each attribute
was doing) we noticed the ruby pointers are very difficult to work with in many cases, especially with complex ruby.

We have not change anything to the current markup or definition or implementation. Just raising a flag about ruby pointer in global
rule (no problem at all with local markup).

Cheers,
-yves

Why? Note that rp can contain anything, by the way - doesn't have to be
opening and closing pairs. I note that there are only two rps in a ruby
element, and that they should surround the rt if they are present - but are
we enforcing such rules with its pointers, or simply pointing?
