Why is this a requirement?  

The content model of a foo:one element could specify a foo:two element
followed by a foo:three element.  Identifying a foo:three element as the
"same" as an html:p element - either in a specific occurrence or for all
occurrences of foo:three elements in various content models - is a
straightforward matter of annotation.  Using an attribute for this has
precedent, too.

| namespace-aware and datatype-aware DTDs.
