Nor is microparsing when passing among systems where morphological indexing
sub-languages have been implemented.  See S1000D DM codes.  They are stored
in attribute lists as types for more robust transport but in use in a pure
id/idref environment they are transformed into single dash delimited
strings.  The same value can be both <content id="Some-DMC"" /> and
some-DMC.xml. It simplifies it enormously by coupling the element name and
filename ids to the same value in a system where id values are generated out
of the morphology.

There are advantages beyond XML trees to build the model-centric aspects of
the data set into embedded languages.  This makes the responsibility for the
genesis or authority over the embedded names to work more independently and
for users in local model environments to better manage their work.   The
danger is the codes for model control and the codes for render control if
not evolving co-dependently (co-dependence of rules and constraints for work
flow and mutually assured value of shared value types), the data bifurcates
by feedback from the error rate in the morphology.  In one sense, this is
error control; in another, it is the actual signal of system evolution
because it details precisely where the controls are making changes, thus the
advantage of measuring the semantic drift, itself a measure of human choice
at the local level forcing change.

IOW, schemas are your best ally in a meeting where all players are betting
on local variations or did not fully realize the schema constraints from the
beginning of the build.  Not implementing co-dependent negotiations as part
of the build constraints means the control values will become corrupt.

Sort of like DNA. Oopsie. :)

the approach to use tags for every time is a common occurrence among newbie
XML designers.  it is verbose and leads to bigger files, and perhaps is more
error prone, but will not affect performance once loaded for 3D printing.

p.s. my personal XML slogan, suitable for bumper sticker or skateboard:
"attributes are not a crime"  8)

all the best, Don
