Thanks, but to clarify in case it wasn't clear in my first post, the
search needs to be transparent.  Under your solution, how is a DC engine
to recognize "ONEWHOCREATES"?  We could of course use attributes, but then
everyone would have to readjust.  The key point here is _transparent_
--otherwise we're just proliferating _yet another_ DTD, NOT transparently
interfacing with well-established archival standards.
