In XML 1.0, 3rd ed., sec. 3.3.2 "Attribute Defaults" the case of a default 
attribute not matching an enumaration is not considered.  Example:

<!ATTLIST list
           type    (bullets|ordered|glossary)  "fancy">

There exists no VC which forbids this, because the VC Attribute Default 
Value Syntactically Correct requires only that the default value meets the 
"syntactic constraints of the declared attribute type", which is Nmtoken in 
the case of Enumerations.  I would suggest adding to prod. [60] a VC 
similar to VC Enumeration of prod [59].
