Ignore XML schema attbibutes in the root element

Apparently, you seem to know the disadvantages of DTD for this purpose.
The ones I'm struggling with include:
- flat namespace (nested elements with same name ...)
- no regex for attribute values (typical: debug="${debug}")
- complex element and attribute rules (looks like XML Schema is not
  as good in attributes as Relax-NG)
- and minor ones (readability, editing support)

My main problem is that we need good error highlighting support in IDEA
and I'm now trying to convince either party to provide some support to get
it done. XML Schema means to me the easiest path since everybody seems
to support it. If we had to go that Relax way, I'd have to fight several
additional battles (get xerces and IDEA support it, have it part of
installation(s), find the tools to generate and edit Relax def. files etc.).
