Please leave the decision of rejecting them to me. :) If I wanted to
reject them I would not be using TEI. At least in my experience, all I
want to do is adding additional constraints or notes. Almost all of them
start in the same way: "In addition to what the TEI guidelines say,
remember to do also..."

I understand this point of view. But then I have the ability to add an
attribute or an element with `@mode="add"`. Where will they be shown in
the HTML? Before or after the other attributes/elements? Who knows? But
is it that important? I'd say that the ability to easily base (and
rebase) a schema over TEI is more important.
