Without actually seeing your schema it's hard to tell which of the
validators is correct, but bear in mind that the processContents
attribute on xs:any defaults to 'strict', which means that if the
validator finds an element in the instance that gets validated against
the xs:any, but it can't find a global element declaration for that
element, it should raise an error.
