It would be easy enough in the ODD to specify as a part of
a content model  eg
      <zeroOrMore>
        <attribute>
          <anyName/>
          <text/>
        </attribute>
      </zeroOrMore> 
which would allow any attribute in any namespace. but that
throws some chances of validation out the window, as it would also
means that 'tarnslate="yes"' was valid.

Personally, I think explicit allowance for anything seems like
bad design. We're trying to predict things which by definition
we cannot predict, at the cost of schema which which will
be very loose in Relax and W3C, and impossible in DTD.
