 Noah,
 certainly the intention was to keep the status quo -
insignificant element names (except that they can carry type
information).
 To your second concern, we may try to specify that the type of
each member must be allowed in that place by the schema language
used for describing this representation of the data. I'm not sure
I'm able to craft the sentence concisely and clearly enough,
though.
 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
