They are both optional [1]. The question is can we find a compelling

    <element name="Object" type="ds:ObjectType"/>
    <complexType name="ObjectType" mixed="true">
      <sequence minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
        <any namespace="##any" processContents="lax"/>
      <attribute name="Id" type="ID" use="optional"/>
      <attribute name="MimeType" type="string" use="optional"/>
      <attribute name="Encoding" type="anyURI" use="optional"/>
