I have a customer who needs to distinguish between the number of color and B&W images in an article. The fig-count element does not provide a specific-use or count-type attribute to do this. Please add this attribute.

Note: While I have a specific use-case for figures, this may be helpful in other contexts:

Tables: count of tables vs. arrays

Words: count of abstract words vs. full text words

Equations: count of inline vs. display equations

So it may be helpful to extend this request all count elements, not just fig-count

Request for model change denied. The non-normative documentation will be enhanced to illustrate use of <count> to encode this information.
