Isn't it fun when people come up with the same conclusion across 
timezones and on the opposite side of the planet? We have been composing 
our answer at the same time - I hadn't yet read your answer. :-)

+1 for your rationale - but I _really_ would like _not_ to use DTDs nor 
Schemas for formally defining our mid-tier format. We are suffering (my
