In SOX, you can do this as:

<elementtype name="Person">
 		<element name="Name"/>
		<element name="Address"/>

<elementtype name="Kid">
		<element name="father"/>
		<element name="mother"/>

<elementtype name="father">
	<instanceof name="Person"/>

<elementtype name="mother">
	<instanceof name="Person"/>

Does my example address your question?
