Part 3:

It would be very helpful, before using them forthwith, to define certain
terms explicitly.  The following list comes to mind: "local", "global",
"document-instance" (as opposed to Schema).

For example, when used later in the text, "local" clearly refers to
document atoms appearing as nested constructs, as opposed to named "global"
atoms defined at the "topmost" level of the schema.  However, earlier in
the section I was applying the concept to mean something like "within the
current document".

Also, regarding the concept of "schema instance", I'm not really clear why
that concept is being distinguished from the simple "schema" concept.
