The {attributes} property on the Annotation schema component
is described as "A sequence of attribute information items,
namely those allowed by the attribute wildcard in the type
definition for the <annotation> item itself or for the
enclosing items which correspond to the component within
which the annotation component is located."

The XML Information Set spec, on the other hand, defines the
[attributes] property of element information items as containing
a set, not a sequence, of attribute information items.

I think the XML Schema spec should probably similarly specify a
set, not a sequence, of attribute information items.
