XMLSchema.xsd: anyType's {prohibited substitutions} is #all

in '3.4.7 Built-in Complex Type Definition' xmlschema-1 specifies the 
{prohibited substitutions} property for anyType as 'The empty set';

in the current XMLSchema.xsd the blockDefault attribute for
the schema element has the value '#all'; the complex type
definition for anyType does not have a block attribute, hence
the actual value of the blockDefault attribute of the schema
element applies;

is it ok to add an empty block="" attribute to the complex
type definition of anyType ?
