I am NOT suggeting this as part of RELAX NG.  I also don't think it is not 
a terribly good idea. I am suggesting it only as part of the compatibility 
spec, which is the home of several things like ID/IDREF and default 
attribute values, which, if I were master of the XML universe, I would 
probably not have created.

My main point is that the facilities of the compatibility spec that modify 
the infoset specifically ID/IDREF and default attribute values will not be 
fully succeeding in their goal of providing compatibility with XML DTDs 
unless there is also a mechanism like XML DTDs for allowing instances to 
specify a schema *for compatibility processing*.
