Subject: Schema issues with extensible attributes

Hi all,

I just noticed that the deprecated attributes from 1.1 (eg. ts, tool) are
still being accepted in 1.2 using the strict schema. They are defined with
use="prohibited" in the strict schema. A good example of this is the example
XLIFF file provided with the specification
(Sample_AlmostEverything_1.2_strict.xlf) - the file still includes all
prohibited attributes, and validates fine with schema validators.

At first I thought this was a bug in the validator I'm using, but then i
noticed how the attribute extension points are defined in the XLIFF schema
(transitional and strict):

      <xsd:anyAttribute namespace="##any" processContents="lax"/>

The XLIFF specification states that "Attributes of a namespace different
than XLIFF can be included in several XLIFF elements". The schema allows for
attributes of any namespace to be included, including xliff-namespace
attributes not defined in the specification. The schema and specification
are inconsistent here, and it seems the right thing to do would be to change
all anyAttribute elements to:

      <xsd:anyAttribute namespace="##other" processContents="lax"/>

In addition, some issues with the strict sample XLIFF file provided with the
 - schemaLocation points to xliff-core-1.2-strict-20060512.xsd (should point
to xliff-core-1.2-strict.xsd)
 - As noted, It still includes the prohibited attributes (eg. tool, ts)

And similar with the transitional sample XLIFF file:
 - schemaLocation points to xliff-core-1.2-transitional-20060512.xsd (should
point to xliff-core-1.2-transitional.xsd)
