For now, I'll leave it. Ron's away for a couple of days, and we can discuss
it when he gets back.

The more I think about this, the more I like it. I'm a little leery of using
fixed attributes in XSchemas because I doubt that they will have much meaning
for processors, but they can certainly show the way. While I wouldn't reduce
Mixed to a Seq in the XSchema, I can see where it might well be convenient for
a processor to do so. I'll put it in.
