e-notation definition missing from MathML 2nd ed schemas?

We have been using MathML in our own work on SBML (Systems
Biology Markup Language; http://sbml.org) and recently
discovered the following discrepancy.

The MathML 2.0 2nd ed. recommendation document at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-MathML2-20031021/ describes
'e-notation' in Section  However, the XML Schema
for MathML 2.0 given at http://www.w3.org/Math/XMLSchema/
does not appear to define e-notation at all.  In fact, the
string 'e-notation' does not appear anywhere within those

Is this an error in the XML Schema, or has there been a
change to the definition of MathML 2.0?

I've looked in the MathML 2.0 errata and searched the
archives for this mailing list (www-math) but haven't been
able to find anything on this topic.

I'd appreciate some guidance from the MathML experts among
