Hmm... looks okay to me in this regard.

Looks good here too.  I very much like the since
attribute:  version number only, meaning we have an
easy way to standardize the rendering of such tags
including capitalization.  ;)

The bugreport says you started w/ Introspection to get
here... I wonder if there is some way we can combine
this doc initiative with Kev Jackson's suggestions on
validation to set up some kind of element/attribute
matrix evaluation to define compatibility between
attributes/elements.  Better yet, get this information
into a single XML format used in documentation and
referenced at runtime for validation and error

Does that sound un-doable?
