That doesn't mean of course that every schema processor will support them; but actually I would like to see schema processors (including my own) evolving in a direction where new primitive data types can be plugged in by users or third parties without change to the base product.

I can see that xs:precisionDecimal does this through a Note. Are you saying that similar Notes could be made for these types within the XML Schema namespace?

Which group do you think would be the right one to take that forward?
