Yes, this is exactly what I'm aiming at.

In a strongly typed system you could also write it like this
And the fact that lower-left is of type point would be expressed
in the schema. I guess that architectural forms
provide the basic machinery to express these relations at the
XML level (that is structurally), but I would also like
to formally express the relations of types and names in the
application level with some schema.
