I am somewhat confused by your description, but if you managed to get
a, say, PSVIElement for an element in your instance, then you can get
to XSTypeDefinition which describes the type that was used to validate
this element. From XSTypeDefinition you should be able to get the
complete content model of a type, including elements and attributes.
