Colour me confused.  The DTD in the draft
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-xlink11-20080331/#sample-dtd-appx has
appropriate _FIXED_ values for xlink:type for each element it declares
('simple', 'extended', etc.).

The XML Schema in the draft is similar, but wrt the complexTypes it
defines (it doesn't declare any elements at all).  This is also true
of the revised version I sent to Norm last year, and of the
simple-link-only version I sent to Norm in May.

Who raised this point, anyway?
