How do you maintain the currency of the declarations? What do you do if the schema
changes? Reprocess the instances either to include the modified attribute value or
by changing the declaration?

I don't think it's appropriate to let the instance dictate terms to the system.
For one thing, it may mean that an instance could be required to be processed
against a schema, even though in the context of the current process, type did not
matter and no schema had been provided.
