Dear Paul and Curt,

Many thanks for you kind help! But it's probably not what I expected: 
I really want to say as a federal agency (I take our 'INTERLIS-words') :
  MODEL Federal =
    CLASS Landcover =
      Type: (
and then there is a canton who can add:
  MODEL Canton EXTENDS Federal =
    CLASS Landcover EXTENDED =
      Type (extended): (building (
        private, public));

and then a county service can subtype:
  MODEL County EXTENDS Canton =
    CLASS Landcover EXTENDED =
      Type (extended): (building (private (
        small, big)));
... an so on. This can't be done (either directly or 'simulated') as I've
understood so far from you XML and XML-Schema examples. Or am I wrong?

Kind regards,
