Does the use of xsi:type in an instance allow the derived type's
attributes to appear in the markup, or is only the derived content model
allowed?  For example.

In the XML Schema Document
<element name="A" type="AType" />

<complexType name="AType">
  <attribute name="attrA" type = "NCName" />

<complexType name="BType" base="AType" derivedBy="extension">
  <attribute name="attrB" type = "NCName" />

In the XML Instance Document
<A xsi:type="BType" attrA="someName" attrB="someOtherName" />

Is this okay?  Or is only attrA allowed?
