I have the knowledge on the RNG side, but I find the DTD stuff 
unreadable. I wish we could get the XHTML world beyond DTDs!

Moving on ... this is where I get confused. DTDs have no support for 
namespaces. And if I look at the XSD fragment in one of the links you 
posted (pasted below), there is no namespace declared.

So how is it given this that these attributes can be namespaced? I'm not 
understanding the technical details that would allow, for example, this 
to be valid:

	<foo:node bar:about="http://ex.net">...</foo:node>

Also, I would think the attributes would allows xsd:anyURI.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
       This is the XML Schema Metainformation Attributes module for XHTML

       XHTML Metainformation Attributes

   <xs:attribute name="about" type="xs:anyURI"/>
   <xs:attribute name="content" type="xh11d:CDATA"/>
   <xs:attribute name="datatype" type="xs:QName"/>
   <xs:attribute name="property" type="xs:QName"/>
   <xs:attribute name="rel" type="xs:QName"/>
   <xs:attribute name="rev" type="xs:QName"/>

   <xs:attributeGroup name="XHTML.metaAttributes.attlist">
     <xs:attribute ref="about"/>
     <xs:attribute ref="content"/>
     <xs:attribute ref="datatype"/>
     <xs:attribute ref="property"/>
     <xs:attribute ref="rel"/>
     <xs:attribute ref="rev"/>
