+1 (sorry Gudge, only [-1,+1] 8-)

I see no merit to that proposal.

Right, plus we wouldn't be able to keep the existing attribute based
syntax, since our mandatory extension mechanism is element based.
We'd have to have something like;

<header>
 <myheader id="foo" ... />
 ...
 <actors mustUnderstand="1">
  <actor ref="foo" value="http://...">
  <actor ref="some-other-id-to-another-header" value="http://...">
 </actors>
 ...

Blech!
