You could have a transliteration title in parallel with it's title by just declaring an attribute with a content model of name token. This is how XLink relates resources to actions. For example: <!ELEMENT title (#PCDATA)> <!ATTLIST title name NMTOKEN #IMPLIED> <!ELEMENT transliteration (#PCDATA)> <!ATTLIST transliteration name NMTOKEN #IMPLIED> <title name="abc">...</title> <transliteration name="abc">...</transliteration> In addition to your schema you also have the semantics that a title element has a transliteration, if and only if, both the title and transliteration elements have a name attribute with the same value.
