The addition of the <openContent> element in XSDL 1.1 is wonderful  
and will greatly simplify extending XML Schemas.

However, I was wondering why the <openContent> element doesn't allow  
for <anyAttribute> to be specified as well as <any> so that XML  
Schemas can be easily extended with new attributes just at they can  
now be easily extended with new elements?  It is certainly much more  
common for new elements to be added, so I'm definitely thankful to  
have <openContent> available at all, but I'm just curious why  
<anyAttribute> support wasn't included as well.

Thanks and best regards,
Rod Hughes
