In TC2 to ISO 8879 (the Web SGML Adaptations, see
<http://www.ornl.gov/sgml/wg8/document/1955.htm>) we added a new attribute
value type, "DATA", that lets you associate a notation name with an
attribute in order to define the rules that govern the interpretation of
the attribute value. The syntax is:

     DATA Iso8601_DateTime 

Where "Iso8601_DateTime" is the name of a declaration notation. For element
content, using NOTATION attribute is sufficient (and part of the existing
SGML and XML specifications:

<!ATTLIST OrderTime
    (Iso8601_DateTime) Iso8601_DateTime

However, I agree that being able to say this on the element type
declaration directly would be convenient.  We didn't consider this for the
TC because it would be too much of a change to the existing syntax.
