Subject: RE: [relax-ng] Simple type assignment

Seems important enough to address soon, especially if it will increase the
chances of adoption by XML vendors.

A type annotation in the form of an attribute seems simple enough. The
sticky part must be telling developers how to implement it and what
behavio{u}rs to expect out of such implementations.
