No one fell for anything last time... that construct is a real pain in the arse, but useful in certain circumstances... It has a meaning and it is valid aXML, but I just can't quite find a way to express it's structure in either standard XML, perl hashrefs/tables or any other existing structure that I am aware of.
I guess you could term it something like an anonymous node, as in you cannot know prior to runtime what the name of the node is, only that it exists and is defined by the result of computing its constituent nodes, and that really screws up every method I have tried on the problem so far.
