There is also a long tradition that wishes for loosening up the content
model is met by intricate and not-of-interest-for-our-aims arguments by
people who have worked with the TEI for a generation (soon), so instead
we just add the type-attribute freely to all elements we feel need it
and define our own variants as mentioned without more ado.
And yes, since Conal Tuohy mentions it in another reply: we do know that
<tei:add> and <his:add> can exist in the same document - it just seems
cleaner for us to use a separate name.
