      This is the exactly the point of the ExtendedData element in KML. As an example:

      <ExtendedData>
      <Data name="GEMEINDE">
      <value>MERAN</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="COMUNE">
      <value>MERANO</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="STRASSE">
      <value>REICHSTRASSE</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="STRADA">
      <value>VIA NAZIONALE</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="HAUSNUMMER">
      <value>103</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="STR_KODEX">
      <value>412</value>
      </Data>
      <Data name="GEM_KODEX">
      <value>21051</value>
      </Data>
      </ExtendedData>

      Basically, this allows to attach any kinf of attributes to a geometry.

      Obviously, I could easily extractpart of the KML schema. Anyway, if something similar does already exists, I would prefer, for the sake of compatibility, prefer to use existsing schemas.
