Yes, because <choices> is meant to group or categorize one or more items
(potentially into hierarchies). In a menu control, this might displayed
using a horizontal line to separate the groups of <item>s. If the
<choices> contains a <caption>, then maybe indent the items under their
corresponding choices.

Actually, your question is quite clear.
