Slightly different, actually.  Roberto suggests that
messageReference:detail is 1:N, I am suggesting that
messageReference:detail is N:1; what we have is 1:1 and the reality may
be N:N.  But I agree that we have sufficient capability in the XML
syntax to simply list them, and that it is clearer to do so using the
1:1 syntax than to introduce either form of one to many, much less many
to many.
