xs:anyType seems to permit wrapping content in CDATA but also permits
any well-formed xml markup.  I attach an example schema and instance

Unfortunately, it also seems to permit attributes on the description
element, which might be reason enough to discount the notion.

Could you give an example of that?  I can't find reference to 
"feature anchor link".
