Hi Shane,


Ideally we'd just say that the XML schema provides the vocabulary.
That would save a lot of maintenance, but we'd need to look at how we
get from one to the other. We might just say that every element or
attribute that is defined gets an entry in the vocabulary, and not
bother to go so far as to try to infer the relationships between those
