The working group discussed this and decided by a majority that we should make
casting from string (and, by implication, constructor functions taking a string
argument) consistent with schema validation: that is, if the target type is a
type derived by restriction using a pattern, the source string should be checked
against the pattern. This means that xs:unsignedInt("+123") becomes an error.
Similarly, for a target type derived from boolean whose pattern allows only
"true" and "false", casting from "0" or "1" would be an error.

As you were present during the discussion, I will mark the issue as closed.
