That is a good catch.

We used to use an asterisk, so that might be the more natural
choice:

element * of type TypeName           (: a wildcard element :)
element * nillable of type TypeName  (: a nillable wildcard element :)
element nillable of type TypeName    (: an element with name 'nillable' :)
element nillable nillable of type TypeName (: a nillable element with name
'nillable :)
