Sorry, I got tired of typing -- originally I had "2 * 2" as the size.

You can use "offset" at the start of a sequential run of elements,
avoiding the overflow, can't you?  In the "2 * 2" case, it would mean
putting an offset attribute on every other item.

Did you want to allow that type of thing or not?

New question: can offset ONLY be used to skip leading elements?  Can it
skip internal elements, too?  Is the following legal (for a
singly-dimensioned array)?
	<f><i enc:offset="4">4</i><i>5</i><i enc:offset="8">8</i>
If that isn't legal, then I think the text needs to make the prohibition
more explicit.
