Among the namespaces categorized as reserved, as per 3.2 Reserved Namespaces, I   
don't find the W3C XML Schema namespace, which only allows addressing built-in   
types(http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-datatypes).   
   
I cannot comment on the issue of the two namespaces(if there is an issue at 
all), but  
my current thought is that the data types namespace should at least be  
reserved. It would otherwise be possible to for example create a stylesheet  
function(xsl:function) with a local name identical to a primitive type and the  
namespace being WXS-datatypes, hence looking like a constructor function, and  
creating potential problems.  
  
  
Cheers,   
Frans
