 This seems indeed clear. They're not sequences even though they can be
realized as one once the age (is that all?) is given.

 OTOH this doesn't answer the question of how should they be represented in
XML. If we want to follow the atomicity principle to the hilt, we'd need to
represent each semicolon-separated part with a tag. And then we'd need
nested tags to describe each of them. E.g. the simple example above would

                        <count>rest</count>  <!-- or -1 or whatever... -->

Of course, handling of "#" and "@" modifiers would require more tags...
