Rather than modifying a schema directly, I would like to explore the options
of utilizing namespace extensions.

One suggestion is to extend the namespace to include an extra xsd with
certain elements declared and then call this from the parent  xsd.


However, this is all well and good until a certain element is actually
inserted, as all the namespace attributes are inserted with it.

Similar to the S1000D  xlink (eg: <arc xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
xmlns:ns1="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" ns1:type="1" ns1:from="1"

            <arc xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"/>)


Do you know of any way the schema or even the data in fact can be extended
so that these certain elements can be inserted without the namespaces
appearing within the attributes ?

OR is the only  method to modify the schema directly ?
