Suppose we have arbitrary XML

<person>
    <name type='full'>
            <first>John</first>
            <last>Doe</last>
    </name>
    <name type='nickname'>Johnny Dee</name>
</person>

is <name> a property of the person, or is name an instance of a class which
has properties <first> and <last>?
