Is it possible to define an abstract element with nillable='true', then
using the element name in an instance document with xsi:nil='true'? This
would appear to be prohibited, but leads to the slightly absurd case
where you have to pick one of the non-abstract members of the
substitution group to say that the value is really not present in the
instance document.
