Following our discussion today, 
I took ACTION-30 to make a combined proposal for ISSUE-3:

Enumerate the fixed precision decimal derived types in 
Basic patterns, and flag the unconstrained 
types: 
	xs:decimal, 
	xs:integer, 
	xs:negativeInteger, 
	xs:positiveInteger, 
	xs:nonNegativeInteger, 
	xs:nonPositiveInteger

as being under a "Design Consideration":

The unconstrained built-in numeric primitive types, xs:decimal,
xs:integer, xs:negativeInteger, xs:positiveInteger, 
xs:nonNegativeInteger and xs:nonPositiveInteger
do not map directly to native types in many programming 
languages. They are likely to be presented as a toolkit 
specific construct or more generalised ways, such as a 
'string'.
