Integrating XLink attributes into XML Schema

I've been looking into adding a set of elements to support hyperlinking in
my schemas, and have pretty much determined that I should use Xlink to
support my needs, instead of rolling my own non-standard method.

So I have two questions:

How can I best allow Xlink attributes such as xlink:type and xlink:href to
be added to a set of elements, and how can I require them to be part of a
given element? For the first question, I'd like to be able to allow any
attribute from the xlink namespace (In the future I'd like to support more
complex links allowed by Xlink), and for the second, I'd like to be able to
require the "xlink:type" and "xlink:href" attributes for a simple link-only
element, to allow for an analogue of the HTML <A> element.

I've been looking, but there seems to be no schema for XLink in existance.
So I'm considering rolling up my own schema for the Xlink namespace and
using that. I wanted to know if there's a better/more standard way of doing
this.

Regards and thanks,

Corey Snow
