You say that that identifiers the "integer datatype". If we were forced
to state that in a formal way we might say that

"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int has rdf:type dataType"

But the XPointer specification disagrees with you. The XPointer
specification says that *if* the XML Schema document is XML then 

http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int has rdf:type XMLElement

I think that this is a pretty fundamental disagreement.
