Let me rephrase that and see if you agree or dis-aggree. You need
a transformation (adding attribute values to elements) to occur
after validation. The only "one ring pull" options you have
are DTD or Schema. You could do it with XSLT or some
other transformation system but it would involve (as things
stand now) two ring pulls?
