In order assign attribute defaults independently from the schema language, I
created a simple XML vocabulary  and an accompanying XSLT "meta-stylesheet".
See http://ats.nist.gov/xsltoolbox/atts.html.

One limitation of this tool is that it doesn't allow for context-sensitive
elements, although I suppose this could be supported by adding xpath
expressions to the XML vocabulary.

At any rate, I think the tool demonstrates that it isn't so unreasonable to
use XSLT rather than a schema language to specify default attributes.
