  1. decide the new format and update the file nrml_examples/source_model/mixed.xml

  2. decide the new validations needed and update the modules, and accordingly

  3. run and fight until all tests pass

  4. update and make sure all the tests in pass, up to reformatting of the XML

  5. if needed, add new tests, especially for tricky validations
