Hi XML Schema Team,

In EDI-X12, there is a concept called conditional requirements.

For instance,

     <complexType name="AccountInformation">
         contains the following elements
         1. AccountNumber
         2. Name
         3. IdentificationCodeQualifier
         4. IdentificationCode
         5. AccountNumberQualifier
         6. AccountNumber
         7. Description
         8. PaymentMethodCode
         9. BenefitStatusCode

   Here I need the following conditional requirements
   (1) if 05 is present 06 must be as well.
   (2) if 07 is present 05 must be as well.
   (3) if any one of 03, 05 is present then all  must be present.

     It could be useful if you provide a straight forward facility to 
specify conditional requirements in XML Schema V1.1
