attributes
Name  Type  Use  Default  Fixed  Annotation
DEF  xs:ID        
appinfo

DEF defines a unique ID name for each node, referencable by other nodes.
USE  xs:IDREF        
appinfo

USE means reuse an already DEF-ed node ID, excluding all child nodes and all other attributes (except for containerField, which can have a different value).
name  xs:NMTOKEN        
appinfo
name attribute is ordinarily required, unless this is a USE node
class  xs:NMTOKENS        
appinfo

The class attribute is a space-separated list of classes, reserved for use by XML stylesheets.
containerField  xs:NMTOKEN    children

ProtoInstance can override field default values via fieldValue initializations.
Non-recursive nested ProtoInstance and ProtoDeclare statements are allowed within a ProtoDeclare.
