In reviewing XML Data for another project, I note that the XML Data
"subclass" mechanism depends on the XML-Data equivalent of the ampersand
operator that was removed from XML. I'm not convinced that putting that
operator back in was a good idea. It was left ouf of XML because it
complicates implementation.
