Actually this header distracted my attention. 

Communication should go to the appropriate mailing list, like said we
are all busy (normally not all at the same time), so always write to the
mailing and even better answer the corresponding thread if possible.

If you read Jims mail you find:

<!ATTLIST xi:include
  parse     (text|xml)  "xml"
  href      CDATA       #REQUIRED
  encoding  CDATA       #IMPLIED

Your error says: 
"...attribute name must be specified in 
the attribute-list declaration..."

The above does not specify it.

<!ATTLIST xi:include
  parse     (text|xml)  "xml"
  href      CDATA       #REQUIRED
  encoding  CDATA       #IMPLIED
  name  CDATA       #IMPLIED

HTH, however a @name attribute is new for me for x:include.

What are you trying to include? SGML in a doc-20? That will never
validate against doc-v20.
