(In reply to comment #30)
> During its 2008-12-12 telecon, the schema WG adopted a proposal to address this
> issue.
> The proposal can be found at (member-only):
>   http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/06/xmlschema-1/structures.b5003c.html
> Changes include:
> 1. Certain attributes can be declared "inheritable"
> 2. When an inheritable attribute is available (either specified or defaulted)
> on an ancestor element, then it's included in the [inherited attributes] PSVI
> property of descendant elements.
> 3. When evaluating type alternative XPaths, [inherited attributes] are
> accessible as if they were also specified on the current element.
> 4. Restriction rules are also updated so that the {inheritable} property of an
> attribute in a restriction type has the same value as the same-named attribute
> in the base type, if any.
> For example, to support the xml:lang scenario raised in this bug, the xml:lang
> attribute can be declared "inheritable":
> <xs:attribute name="lang" type="xs:language" inheritable="true">
>   ...
> </xs:attribute>
> Then the schema snippet in the original bug report will work.
> Note the linked proposal shows "heritable" as the name of the properties. The
> WG agreed to use "inheritable" instead.
> With these change, the WG believes that the issue raised in this bug report
> is fully addressed. I'm marking this RESOLVED accordingly.
> Felix and Michael, as the persons who opened and reopened this issue, if you
> would indicate your concurrence with or dissent from the WG's disposition of
> the comment by closing or reopening the issue, we'll be grateful. If we don't
> hear from you in the next two weeks, we'll assume that silence implies consent.
