Dear All--

Can <name-alternatives> be changed to contain <collab> in it?

This is an interesting request. I can understand wanting a <collab> in multiple languages or multiple scripts, but I am a little uncertain that just adding <collab> is the way to go:

Can a <name> or a <string-name> ever be an alternative for
a <collab>? Or, if you used multiple collaborations would it always
be with other <collab>s?

So I ask the group:

 - Would it be better to just allow any mix (these are NOT
   enforcing Tag Sets after all):

name-alternatives (collab | name | string-name)+

- Or to try to restrict the usage:

name-alternatives (collab+ | (name | string-name)+ )

- Or to give <collab> its own alternatives:

collab-alternatives (collab+)

- Or something else entirely?

What say you all?
