annotations outside validation

All this discussion of IDs is making me wonder if maybe it isn't time to
consider creating a class of attributes which aren't considered for
validation of any kind, DTD or schema.


Make a magic namespace and fix a prefix for it.  (Maybe xmlm for XML

Tell validators not to touch anything in that namespace.

Sprinkle as desired.

Yeah, I know it's a stupid idea, fraught with all kinds of dangerous
consequences, incompatibilities, and other difficult issues.

On the other hand, we seem to constantly get stuck on all kinds of
issues as we move into discussions where additional post-validation
information is necessary, and we seem to just go around that in circles.
