RE: Is possible to have choice type facility for an attribute

xsd choice attribute
Sadly, no.
I've never quite understood why: XML Schema when to a lot of efforts to make elements and attributes symmetric, but they are handled quite differently in content models.

Subject: Is possible to have choice type facility for an attribute of schema

Like the way choice is applied for an element, I want same type of functionality for attributes too.
I want sort of like below:
<xsd:element name="name">
   <xsd:attribute name="operator" type="OperatorType" default="EQUALS" use="required"/>
   <xsd:attribute name="value" type="xsd:string" use="required"/>
