In my mind if <a><b><c> are elements of type "item" the rule below would match 
each of them as a target element.

target-element matches an element, not the lack of an element. Consider:

<element type="list">
        <element type="item" count="any">
                <target-element ....>


The rule above matches the list below but there *is no target
