The binding syntax should definitely be XML.  I also suggest that it be done in 
such a way that the bindings can exist in a separate file (as shown in the 
example) or dropped into a schema file.  (In the example above, <mixinassoc> 
could exist inside XSchema's ElementDecl element, where the elem attribute would 
not be set, or directly beneath an XSchema element, ready for reuse elsewhere.)
