I don't think you're talking about a conflict or change, you're referring to
the fact that most of the open content models in 1.0 used ##other and the
new KeyDerivationMethodType in 1.1 uses ##any?

I think that's intentional, the use of any is more consistent with the
approaches taken in XML Signature for open content models. Open means open.
