I'm very willing to do this; capitalization has been an issue for me
throughout. Whatever we do, I want it to be _consistent_.

I can go either way on this one. I thought sticking to the spec might
encourage consistency, but I don't think the labels in the spec are in
widespread usage. Element instead of ElementDecl is fine with me.

As anyone who's read XML:A Primer knows, I'm an ALLCAPS person, but the
current system is mostly fine for me. (I got a bit lost when ALLCAPS turned to
Mixed in things like IDREF.)
