I believe that to be extemely politically unworkable solution.

The xml:schemaLocation I might agree if it was just
xml:validationLocations="namespace schemalocation namespace shemalocation"
but then this opens up problem with validation types not supported by various

xml:type and xml:nil I think, being validation specific concepts should not
be put into the xml namespace. I believe you would get all sorts of rants
from cranky smart people if you tried it.
