Another good catch (I expected this problem somewhat).

XInclude processors are allowed to put this in (and it makes a lot of 
sense to do so). If we want to validate post-Xinclude results, we'll 
either need a preprocessing step (filtering out the attribute), or allow 
it either "anywhere" or at least on those elements where it's likely to 
turn up.
