Assessment Outcome (Attribute) only applies to attributes that have been 
assessed. Since there is no difference between assessment and strict assessment 
for an attribute, an attribute that has not been strictly assessed will never 
have a [validation attempted] property, so it is impossible for the [validation 
attempted] property to be none. Similarly the [validity] property can never be 

This seems odd. An attribute with no type declaration cannot be assessed 
(Schema-Validity Assessment (Attribute)), so it will never have any PSVI 
properties, whereas it would be natural for it to have [validation attempted] = 
none and [validity] = notKnown.
