I could imagine all sorts of extensions such as: <sign>dynamic</sign>

Extensions... that reminds me that I once tried to extend an XML  
schema that I used in a configuration and was happy I had a version  
attribute defined so that my parser knew that the schema had changed.

Has versioning of the XML been considered, or is there some standard  
way of doing extensions? I must admit I have only practical knowledge  
of XML and schemas.
