Well, the schema says that it's invalid for the attribute to be
missing, so if Xerces is validating but isn't reporting that, I think
it's buggy. Before reporting it, though, I'd make sure that you're
calling Xerces correctly and that it does spot other kinds of errors.

Try MSXML4. The easiest way to use it is to install MSXML4 and then
use Topologi's Schematron validator from www.topologi.com.
