Whether you evaluate the security level first because it's an attribute or 
whether you evaluate it first because it's the first child element, you're 
still going to evaluate it before you evaluate the (other) child 
elements.  Why/how is it worse to deal with it first as a child element 
rather than dealing with it first as an attribute?
