FM+SGML: multiple attribute values

I have an FM+SGML document suite that features an element with both 
multiple attributes and (optionally) multiple values, from a specific 
set, per attribute.

A bit of prototyping suggests this is a modest nightmare for authors. 
They have to remember the values, and type them correctly. With 
single-value attributes from a specific set, authors get a drop-down menu.

Would it be possible to constrain multiple attribute value entry through 
some kind of tick-box interface via work in the FDK, or AppleScript, or 
something? If it's possible in theory, does it sound like a major piece 
of work?
