Regarding the draft at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/PER-xmlschema-1-20040318/:


Section D says:

   Attribute Information Item
     [local name], [namespace name], [normalized value]
   Character Information Item
     [character code]
   Element Information Item
     [local name], [namespace name], [children], [attributes],
     [in-scope namespaces] or [namespace attributes]
   Namespace Information Item
     [prefix], [namespace name]

Although it can be inferred, it is not perfectly clear what the
"or" applies to.

One fix would be:

   ...
   Element Information Item
     [local name], [namespace name], [children], [attributes],
     either [in-scope namespaces] or [namespace attributes]
   ...

Another would be:

   Attribute Information Item
     [local name], [namespace name], and [normalized value]
   Character Information Item
     [character code]
   Element Information Item
     [local name], [namespace name], [children], [attributes],
     and either [in-scope namespaces] or [namespace attributes]
   Namespace Information Item
     [prefix] and [namespace name]
