As specified, your requirement cannot be met by W3C XML Schema.

I'm tempted to say that this looks like questionable markup design,
since all the structural information which would allow validation
and/or type assignment to do any useful work is 'hidden' in
attributes, and to wonder why you don't say


but I won't, because I don't know what other constraints you are
trying to satisfy. . .
