I don't see how XML can get violated by what I suggested. In the case 
you imply where the XML is for consumption by multiple entities, there 
must be some agreement in the form of a schema anyway. What I suggest is 
a flexible model that does not break XML 1.0 and can be agreed upon. No 
reason to worry... just expect a simple type in the form of either an 
element or an attribute; but a simple type is just that.

No need to worry.
