Brilliant!  Would this work across namespaces?
i.e.

                  P:LargeGroup
                 /       |    \    \
  Q:SmallGroup   P:X  P:Y P:Z
      /   |    |   \
  Q:A Q:B Q:C Q:D

X,Y and Z have to be globally defined to participate in a Substitutiongroup 
anyway. Assuming their Complex Types were also globally defined (i.e. named) 
and incestuously derived by extension from each other, could this be a 
viable mechanism for extending a class hierarchy established in one 
namespace from a second namespace, so that the leaves could inherit common 
features from both namespaces?

Cheers Jack
