Yes, you misunderstood. The elements.xml is autogenerated from several files. 
It is valid CML with the namespace "bo:".
That file is updated every now and then, I just added those four datasets as 
one file each. After the next generation elements.xml will include the 
values. Then, all BO-supporting apps will have them.

I already generated the file and put it in KDE's repo, so Kalzium is ahead of 
the rest of the world ;-)
