Yeah. This is exactly what I had in mind. And again, not just the
auth-method, but any enumerated option value or c:* stuff.

Some examples for that, which I collected after a quick glance on the spec:
1. c:request's method attribute.
2. p:insert's position option.
3. p:namespace-rename's apply-to option.
4. p:validate-with-xml-schema's mode option.
