"can" being the operative word here - "can" and "should" is the
bar for Advanced Patterns, whereas "is in practice" is the 
bar we're using for the Basic Patterns.

You might, for example, like to try generating code from a Schema
using xs:anySimpleType with the Microsoft .NET 1.1 wsdl.exe 
and xsd.exe tools ...
