Hi Don,

Indeed, attribute values can contradict each other, but there's no other way to offer different encoding approaches.  The basic solution to this problem is to avoid double encoding; that is, only one of @loc or @pname should be used.  Eventually, we may get around to enforcing this approach via Schematron.
