A JATS user required people submitting JATS documents to them to wrap each <subject> in a <subj-group>, not allowing multiple <subject>s in a <subj-group> because the samples in the Tag Library don't show any <subj-group>s with more than one <subject>. Even after I pointed out that the model allows <subject> to repeat, they insisted that this might be OK by the model but was discouraged in practice, based on the samples.
Submitter Proposed Solution
Show samples with repeating structures when appropriate.

Thank you for your comment. The JATS Standing Committe has addressed your request. Non-normative supporting materials including schemas with these additions in place should be available soon.

The Standing Committee's recommendation is:

Examples of repeating structures will be added to the non-normative documentation.
