How about something akin to "javax".  The ability to insert an extra
attribute to a non-conforming element that says "this is extended beyond the
schema".  Then you'd still catch mistakes in a standard type (e.g. "runtal"
when "rental" was meant), but still allow true extensions (e.g. "leasing").  

I like the idea of providing an enumeration, even in cases where that's just
a serving suggestion or starting point.
