           Version: 1.1 only

We have a rule that prevents attribute declarations in the XSI namespace, other
than the four standard attributes defined in the spec.

In the same spirit of paternalism, would it be appropriate to ban attribute
wildcards that permit the appearance of names other than these four in the XSI
namespace? There seems little point in locking the front door and leaving the
back door open, even if there's not much in the house worth stealing.
