  Regarding the particular bit of Schema you sent: e-notation
 is unusual in that it allows a <sep/> tag in the content, to
 delineate the two parts of the number.  It looks like the
 snippet of XML Schema you sent only has the part for adding
 e-notation to the enumeration for the 'type' attribute.  Is
 the <sep/> tag already handled by some other part of the
 MathML Schema, or does it need to be added somewhere too?

sep is used for others as well, rational and  complex-cartesian for
example.

Unlike Relax NG, XSD schema can not constrain the content model of an
element based on an attribute value, so the XSD schema allows sep
children with any cn whatever the value of type.
