Deepak is right - the <attribute name="transport"> block must be
embedded in an <optional> block.  <zeroOrMore> only applies to elements,
but as written, your zeroOrMore says that it is okay to omit the overall
<host> element, but that if you provide a <host> element, it MUST have a
transport='...' attribute, and that is not correct.  For back-compat
reasons, ALL new attributes must be in an <optional> block since older
clients of the XML did not provide the new attributes.

'.' is valid in IPv6 addr.  But yes, ':' is mandatory in IPv6, and
forbidden in IPv4, so it makes a good distinguishing test between the
two families.
