I've been trying to figure what this actually does. In experimenting with it, I irrecoverably lost a whole grammar I was working on, so I'll just ask you.

Sorry for the loss, is actually the whole XML file unusable?

The consists-of was initially used for the automatic selection of one of multiple structures. It's only used in the AFP grammar.

The generic way to select one of many structures is to reference them in a structure with order "variable" and min repeat count of 0.
