As specified, it gets a value when an Attribute Declaration has a value 
constraint but not when an Attribute Use has one.

Either we should

1) Deprecate this in 1.0 and remove it from 1.1 (what use is it, anyway -- why 
is it here?);

2) Add a Note about its half-brokenness;

3) 'fix' it, pbly by moving it under Complex Type Defn PSVI contributions and 
folding in Attribute Uses.
