As it stands today this is not terribly functional. If you use only DTD
2.0 syntax profiles then <check> is supported and should still work, but
no syntax 3.x functionality has been finished for this yet in nALFS.

It is under development, and may be in version 1.3, certainly it will be
in version 1.4. Even then, though, we won't be using it in the official
profile for some time as we can't force everyone who uses that profile
to upgrade to the latest nALFS.
