Michael:
My recollection is that we took a decision some time ago to return
the base Schema types and not more specific derived types because
this helped function composability.  We do the same thing in 14.1.2,
fn:local-name.  fn:item-at and fn-index-of return xs:integer and not
the more specific xs:int. 


All the best, Ashok
