           Summary: what is a "wildcard element type"?

3.5.4 Sequence type matching
This section refers to "wildcard element type" and "wildcard
attribute type".  These terms are not defined.  I believe they
refer to elements or attributes of any permitted name and 
the most general permitted types (nillable xs:anyType 
and xs:anySimpleType, respectively). It would be better to show
the complete expansion.  Otherwise the reader may have the 
impression that "element" is one type and "element nillable
of type xs:anyType" is something else.  See also my comment #1614 that 
it would be better if the Formal Semantics did not rely on defaults,
or ask the reader to supply them.
