You mean like when <title>Mr</title> Cantrell borrows <title>Some
Tedious Book On XML</title> from the library? The application dealing
with this has to know that <person><title>...</title></person> is
different from <book><title>...</title></book> and deal with the two
titles appropriately. It needs to have all that special knowledge built
in. So I still fail to see the point.
