Java1.4 ships with Crimson that is not schema aware; Java1.5 comes with 
a copy of Xerces.

IMO, the best way to allow user-extensible attributes to an element 
would  be to declare them in a separate namespace.

The complex type definition would allow other attributes in namespace 
##other, so you could add new attrs just by declaring things in a 
private namespace. this does not mean that I am a fan of namespaces or 
XSD, but they do work together (Sometimes).
