           Summary: [XQuery] Change namespace binding for anyAtomicType,
                    yearMonthDuration and dayTimeDuration
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XQuery
        AssignedTo: chamberl@almaden.ibm.com
        ReportedBy: kuanhui@xemantics.com
         QAContact: public-qt-comments@w3.org


Kindly consider changing the namespace binding for 
anyAtomicType, yearMonthDuration and dayTimeDuration to
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema
rather than 
http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-datatypes

Either that or propose to the XML Schema 1.1 working group to
retain the bindings to http://www.w3.org/2005/xpath-datatypes.

Kindly reference :-
XML Schema 1.1 Part 2: Datatypes Working Draft dated 24 February 2005
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xmlschema11-2-20050224/#anyAtomicType-def
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xmlschema11-2-20050224/#yearMonthDuration
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xmlschema11-2-20050224/#dayTimeDuration

Otherwise, with the subsequent introduction of XML Schema 1.1, 
redundancies (and ambiguities) will be introduced into the 
3 (current) xdt types. I see no harm in binding anyAtomicType,
yearMonthDuration and dayTimeDuration to xs rather than xdt.

If this issue has been dealt with before, kindly enlighten
me on the considerations.

Thank you.
