Would it not be preferable to use 
<c0x level="otherlevel" otherlevel="file?">
as "file?" is not part of the accepted list of values for the LEVEL attribute

simply code every resulting <c0x> as @LEVEL=file?  Then the coding is
intellectually sound, and it reflects the circumstance that no useful
hierarchy presents itself in their arrangement.
