I am unable to specify that the <any> element must contain certain specific
attributes (attr1 and attr2) and certain children (Specific). Is this
possible at all in XML Schema? 
No, "any" means what it says. The only thing you can constrain is the
You could use an abstract element in this position that requires the
specific attributes and children; the position could then contain any
element that's defined to be in the substitution group of this abstract
element. This allows a finite set of element names, there is no way of
permitting any element name.
