Following up my previous note, my suggestions leave unsolved the
problem of how to represent a situation like the above, where a single
name can have two or more values. Two possibilities:

* Multiple name=value pairs with the name repeated each time.
* A special syntax for representing multiple values; e.g.

First one probably makes more sense, and parallels Pei's approach.
