Here I want to float an idea I have mentioned offline to Pat.

Would it make sense to restrict the structure of collections in the 
*abtract syntax*.  Don't worry Dave, I don't think it affects the XML 
syntax - it can only produce well formed lists already.  We write the 
abstract syntax so that lists must be syntactically well formed.  Anything 
else is not well formed RDF.
