I think what I'm going to aim for is something a little less harsh than 
INVALID or forbidden, something like

(Recommended | Possible | Unlikely)

Does that keep everyone's ducks in a row?  Authoring software would tend to 
ignore the Unlikelys and emphasize the Recommendeds, while those writing 
XSchema processors wouldn't have to check "Forbidden" and kick out someone's 
unfortunate legacy document for committing sins against the designer's intent. 
I think this keeps us more in line with current practice, while providing 
enhanced (recommendation) functionality.
