  BTW I was looking at the Relax-NG grammar and found the following
confusing when providing an IP address:

        <element name="ip">
          <optional>
            <attribute name="address"><ref name="ip-mask"/></attribute>
          </optional>
        </element>

I'm not really sure what ip-mask really means, are you trying to
put in a single attribute both the IP address and the netmask ?
If that's the case I would really suggest to split the two as separated
IP and netmask in the XML structure, either separate attributes or
another element for the netmask. Best to us the explicit structure of
XML than a construct hidden inside the text field, unless I
misunderstood the use case...

  Sorry for hijacking :-)
