Yes. As Martin mentionned, that is specified in the charter.
However, we probably have to think about schemas (like XSD). One can imagine to
have our tag set used there (for translating the doumentation inside the schema
for example). But a schema seems also somewhat of a logical place to specify
"properties" associated with elements and attributes. It's actually already the
case: For example, Martin mentioned a mechanism to define what characters are
allowed in a given element, there is also existing ways to set length
limitation, etc. I'm not sure yet how much we should worry about that aspect of
"embedded properties".

Maybe you could concentrate first to identify the different issues, regardless
whether their solutions will need to be specified inside the document instance
or outside as a general property (or both). It's probably reasonable to assume
that only few, if any, need to be solve only as a general property.
