Matching any element

I didn't see one in my examination of patterns (match-element?), but I was
wondering if there is a built-in element-type wildcard such that I can do a
pattern that will match elements of any type with a particular attribute

For example, I'm trying to define architecture-based processing by
processing all elements in a list of a particular form, i.e., whose
archform naming attribute has a particular value (e.g., hytime="clink").  I
didn't see a direct way to do this with the match-type functions.

I can write my own process-matching-children function to do this, but I was
hoping I could avoid it.
