Thanks.  I am actually looking for personal reactions.  I don't recall
seeing anything "exactly" like this before either.
For conciseness; I am really leaning towards:

<xs:complexType name="ct-fd897186-1ec9-4534-bdca-3be434c93924"

My reasoning is:
1) there are no pre-existing approaches, that I have found
2) it is very concise
3) it ties the complexType name directly to the semantic attribute
4) it is legal in XML Schema
5) it is easy to query the name and semantic link type together,
irregardless of which attribute the knowledge modeller decides to use.

Not shown before but the element in the instance and the complexType
name share the UUID. So we have:
<xs:element name="el-fd897186-1ec9-4534-bdca-3be434c93924"

Since they are all unique, it is easy to take the element name and
look it up in the collection of schemas.

Thoughts?  Again, previous uses cases and/or personal opinions are
encouraged.  :-)

This is helpful information.  Thank you.
