[Geowanking] Software Standards - The Ugly Truth

One question that I've never been able to quite clarify:
Can GML express multiple instances of geometry?
I would like to express a city building and have multiple instances of that
building at different orientations and positions.
A document describing my imaginary city should preserve high level
abstractions: that the building in it are multiply instanced - rather than
"flattening" out to a series of polygons and vertexes in duplicate. I want
a succinct transport that models my own human understanding.
It appears that this must be possible insofar as that GML itself appears to
be a kind of framework notation within which one defines specialized
profiles. CityGML for example may have this capability?
It's not entirely clear.
