But it also implies that (as in the suggestion at the start of this
thread) that we need to change from the current draft proposal and
ensure that the element/attribute names match those in (some version of) 
the XML or XML Namespace REC.

I think if we can decide that there is a requirement that the output 
from xml-er is (or corresonds to) well formed xml, then decisions about 
whether we express that using a data model or as a literal xml document 
or both, will be a lot easier.
