[xml-dev] xsd:appInfo and xsd:documentation inconsistencies

I've noticed that almost all the elements in the W3C XML Schema Language 
can have arbitrary attributes from other namespaces. For instance, this 
allows you to make an xsd:attribute element a simple XLink by giving it 
xlink:type and xlink:href attributes or identify the language of an 
xsd:notation using an xml:lang attribute.

However xsd:appInfo and xsd:documentation alone among the 40+ schema 
elmeents do not allow this. Why were these two elements singled out not 
to allow arbitrary attributes?
