Great changes. Especially the removed, unsemantic, not necessary element 
and the added 'repeat-min' and 'repeat-max' attributes.

This bugs me a bit, but validating documents delivered as 
application/*+xml isn't really necessary anyway.

Would it be possible to enable syntax highlighting for the examples, 
just as you have done on your weblog a couple of times? I think it might 
make the examples easier to read.

It might make sense to add 'overflow:auto' to PRE elements so people 
won't get a horizontal scrollbar for the *entire* specification, just 
for the examples and other constructs which benefit from this.
