Good example, thanks! I guess that the same kind of thing happens in
DTDs if you have (a+)+ for example, but that it doesn't matter because
the maximum occurrence of particles in DTDs is always either 1 or
unbounded.

I'm not qualified to judge whether it's legal or not -- I had the
impression that the intention was that non-deterministic content
models were all illegal. Perhaps Henry or someone will point out the
place in the Rec (or the errata) where this example is covered...
  
Cheers,

Jeni
