It's not clear to me that appinfo is considered part of the element
declaration - in your example it contained a lookup table that the schema
processor wouldn't know anything about.  I've always assumed that appinfo
was outside of the schema-known information about the element.  I can
understand an argument that it should be included, but I haven't found
anything so far that actually says so.

Do you think that's one of these things that's understood and agreend upon
but not (yet) spelled out?
