The list is only closed for what is generated automatically, and non-normatively
from the ODD source document, see
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.odd . We will probably
have a conformance section saying "a schema which hosts ITS markup declarations
has to make sure ... about the positions of the declarations" (e.g. data
category attributes MUST be available for all elements. But that conformance
criterion will talk about the positions on a schema-independent level.
