There is absolutly no change to the PSVI by using these mechanisms.

The PSVI is clearly defined by the XML Schema specification. Any changes to
it will render the processor non-conforming. These mechanisms are meant for
applications or processors built on top of XML Schema. Whether a document is
schema valid has nothing to do with anything that can be in appInfo or in a
non-native attribute.
