I understand your goal but I think that that is too severe a constraint.
The convenience of annotating the tree from the schema is just too large.

Given a schema and a design for an application, the application designer
can decide whether the application needs to be built on top of a schema
processor or not. If it needs archetype, default, etc. then it must be,
otherwise it does not need to be. Clearly language designers would have to
start taking responsibility for performance. "If we depend on that then
schema-less processing will be impossible.

I think that it should always be possible to choose to see the same view
that a schema-less processor would see.
