Then I'm not sure these are feasibly valid without changing the schema, and not sure we should do that just to accommodate this.

no mystery about this. from http://www.thaiopensource.com/relaxng/jing.html

"A document is feasibly valid if it could be transformed into a valid document by inserting any number of attributes and child elements anywhere in the tree. This is equivalent to transforming the schema by wrapping every data, list, element and attribute element in an optional element and then validating against the transformed schema. "
