Yes I sent some private mail on this ... the upshot: using ANY is a false
economy. It's a simpler DTD but really hides a lot of ambiguity. Avoiding
its use does make the grammar (and its description) more understandable and
if done as correctly (see her mail showing what this might look like) will
not make the grammar unwieldy.

Just checking, but did we reach agreement (at least between Saveen and
Judy) to make the grammer specific where possible (e.g. not use ANY where
prop will do), etc?

I believe the last message I saw (from Saveen) indicated that Judy had
persuaded him.  I want to make sure that's right, and test whether there
are any others lurking who object, or perhaps all are now convinced?
