somebody correct me if I am wrong.
That's correct if you're talking about one XYZ for the possessive. For
more than one, I would add:
XYZs' = plural possessive
Our editorial forum decided that plural possessive
was a bit much for the reader to read easily so we
don't allow it in our docs. Most if not all of the
time you can rewrite a sentence to avoid it.
