31   * Under certain circumstances, it is necessary for the binding compiler to
32   * generate derived java content classes that implement this interface.  In
33   * those cases, client applications must supply element instances rather than
34   * types of elements.  For more detail, see section 5.7 "Element Declaration"
35   * and 5.7.1 "Bind to Java Element Interface" of the specification.
