Er. I was trying to be general. :-)

As I say I'm happy with the repetition model. As it stands, I think it 
is workable. I'm not entirely happy with introducing double-barrelled 
attribute names (this implies that we've missed a level of abstraction). 
But I appreciate that we are trying to work within the existing HTML 
rules of containment.

It was my understanding (from reading previous threads) that there were 
still some misgivings about the repetition model. As Olav suggests, it 
may be complex enough to warrant a separate document. That would give us 
some leeway to iron out any crinkles that the model is perceived as having.

I've thought about some changes we could make to the model but to be 
honest, I think it may be as good as we can do. Which is pretty good IMHO.
