Henry's response, I've tweaked the text a bit in 1.102 .

Your intent is certainly fine.  A longer way of saying it would be
"generate instances which are schema-valid by exploiting the lax
wildcard in the content model".

Ah, now I look at the full context, and would suggest 

  Implementation MUST generate schema-valid [XML-schema] EncryptedData
  or EncryptedKey instances as specified by the subsequent schema
  declarations (note these may contain non-schema-validated elements
  because of the lax wildcards therein) and SHOULD . . .

Note however that as far as I can tell there actually _aren't_ any
wildcards in the EncryptedData or EncryptedKey type definitions in the
most recent draft [1] ???
