Can I inter-mix other vocabularies with an XML Schema defined vocabulary in an instance document, and still have a valid document? If so, how? 

N.B. the answer should ideally not involve any changes to the XML schema, just to the conformant document (e.g. I cannot use <xsd:anyAttribute namespace="##other"/>, etc).

This is the sort of thing I have in mind:

<message xmlns="http://www.mynamespace.com"; xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"; xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mynamespace.com my_schema_location" xmlns:fred="http://fred";>
<my_valid_element fred:attribute_from_another_vocabulary="hello">...</my_valid_element>

I assume that the above would fail validation.

Thanks for any help.
