Ah yes, I was looking at the restrictions on xs:all cardinality itself, not 
the elements within it.  Panic over!!!

Thanks.

So in summary, for XSD 1.1 you can do:

<xs:all>
    <xs:element ref="a" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
    <xs:element ref="b" minOccurs="0" />
</xs:all>

but you can't in XSD1.0.
