Probably I'm missing something, but in XHTML5 you can freely use
additional elements/attributes which are not from
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace. So I don't know what problem you
see there.

If you are interested in schemas for such compound documents, you can
build your own schema based on some unofficial HTML5 schemas.
