| I would like to re-add my third option which was to keep mergeMap and added
| themes but have two schemas, one base schema with just representation and a
| refinement/extension schema that includes the mergeMap element.

I find that quite an interesting idea. It would open up
the possibility of simpler, but conforming TM processors.

What would we call the two, what would their namespaces be,
and would <mergeMap> be the only thing that differentiated

A strawman:
