Please adopt the style used in <http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt>, it's the
most readable notation I have come across in a specification and I know
from a lot of authors (including myself) that this notation greatly
helped them to learn the language. This RelaxNG stuff along with these
odd "Expected children" / "Expected context" things is most difficult to
access even for me. I agree that it is generally more readable than the
parameter entity mess in SVG 1.1 and the odd infoset speak in SOAP 1.2
but it is still far worse than the approach in XSLT 1.0.
