That idea also crossed my mind, but we already have EARL pointers 
inside location (with an <xs:all> group). If we want to go down this 
road, it would look like this:

<locations>
  <location>
    <!-- EARL pointers here -->
    <techniques>
      <technique />
      <technique />
    </techniques>
  </location>
  <location>
    <!-- EARL pointers here -->
    <techniques>
      <technique />
      <technique />
    </techniques>
  </location>
</locations>

Do people like this approach?

Best regards,

Christophe
