In the descriptions of dayTimeDuration [1] and yearMonthDuration [2], the 
specification claims that the given datatype is derived from xsd:duration. 
 Then, the immediately following content particle presents a schema 
definition that derives the datatype as a restriction of string, not 
duration.

The restriction from string is easier because it makes it easier to allow 
empty string, so the sentence claiming the datatype is derived from 
duration should just be deleted via a trivial erratum.
