Reviews of multiple books, as when DDJ reviews 5 books in a column, or
Yee reviews all the books in a trilogy or series.  I'd wrap up
(title,author+) in an 'item' element, a good generic name.

Also, I'd like to have 'review' be the root element of the DTD,
meaning one review = one document.  However, because no one defines
how validation works in the presence of namespaces, you can still
have documents that contain multiple reviews.
