I don't know what you are talking about. A schema rule is inherently
triggered based on hooks within the document. What could be a more
natural hook than the universal name for an element type?

This isn't saying that an element type is necessarily defined by a
schema. It is saying that a schema rule is triggered by an element type.
...seems logical to me... Among other things, it fits hedge automata
theory perfectly.
