Default Rules based on attribute values...

Is it possible through XML Schema Definitions to model e.g. that an attribute value can only be some specific value if another attribute has got another specific value? Say I have an XML document where these two nodes valid are present...
<task type="begin" action="establish" />
<task type="end" action="finalize" />
... then I will not allow...
<task type="begin" action="finalize" />
I am aware that I could do two seperate elements, but is there a way to model more constraints like this?

Hope you can help, Jacob.

I don't think this is possible using XML schemas.
