<choice> marks editorial options. It's a member of model.editLike and its children are all members of the model.editLike or model.editorialLike classes.  It's not intended to be used for generic "either-or" encoding decisions.

Sorry, I might be completely off-topic here, but would <choice> in <perfRes> be an option?

Hi Benni,

Yes, @type will be added in the next release.

Your solution looks good, but may I suggest --

1. <perfResList xmlns="http://www.music-encoding.org/ns/mei" xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
2.   <perfResList codedval="wb" count="3">
3.     <head>Oboes</head>
4.     <perfResList count="2" type="performer">
5.      <perfRes codedval="wb" solo="false">Oboe</perfRes>
6.      <perfResList type="substitution">
7.        <perfRes codedval="wz" solo="false">Oboe d'amore</perfRes>
8.        <perfRes codedval="wb" solo="false">Oboe</perfRes>
9.      </perfResList>
10.      </perfResList>
11.      <perfRes count="1" type="performer">
12.        <perfRes codedval="wb" solo="false">Oboe</perfRes>
13.        <perfRes codedval="wz" solo="false">Cor d'anglais</perfRes>
14.      </perfRes>
15.    </perfResList>
16. </perfResList>

This puts the indication of substitution on the <perfResList> rather than on the secondary instrument.  Also, @count at line 5 has been removed.
