I've only followed some of this thread.  That said:  isn't it reasonable 
that I might want to define xml:lang, for purposes of my schema, as being 
an enumeration of say  {en,fr}?   Why prevent that? 

I think it would be a good thing if many parsers took switches to force 
loading of particular schemas, to force schemaLocation to be honored on 
import, etc.  Of course, there can be no conflict among (global) 
definitions of a given element or attribute.
