Why just not
<item name="Place of worship">
   <choice key="religion">
      <element value="Linux">
          <denomination value="Debian"/>
           <denomination value="PLD Linux"/>
And let the app do the rest without inducing extra programming on it's side?
Just my two cents not really thoroughly thought of ;)
