Thanks a lot for your comments.

In our situation a default attribute value is not something we want to have in
the DTD or XML Schema, because then it would be stored in the XML instance
sooner or later.

As an example, take e.g. the CALS table cell attributes @rowsep and @colsep:
They may be set to "0" | "1" (or: "no" | "yes") to explicitly turn off or on
the respective cell border. If not set, the settings from the row or colspec
are used. In such a situation a stored default value would not be useful,
because there is an indeterminate third status. But in a certain
transformation you may have an effective default value. That is what we have
been using here.
