At its January 2001 meeting in London the XML Schema Working Group
addressed issue CR-43
http://www.w3.org/2000/12/xmlschema-crcomments.html#cyclic-substitutions
(originally documented by Alexander Falk in
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-schema-comments/2000OctDec/0
437) by voting to open this as an outstanding issue, then resolving it
by accepting the proposal to forbid cyclic substitution groups
explicitly.

The syntactic (schema) prohibition of cycles in substitution group
specification is motivated by the desire to provide early warning of a
potential semantic (validation) error.
