I presented two designs to the WG, attached to my emails:

to which the comments on XML-style and schemas support were mostly:

I guess UMD has changed position :)  Which is perfectly fine.

Given no other big response influencing my choice after the last email,
and subsequent telcon discussions, I chose the simplest thing that would work.  

Right now I can see there are more motivations for the complex form,
with the schema support.  The result2* attachments to the 0364.html
email include the schema-full design I made in November but it will
need updating for later changes and to deal with other comments.
