I didn't see it that way, no.  I see it as an appropriate response to
a community request for profiles of XSD suitable for data binding use,
for people who wanted to use XSD for data binding.  From the Abstract [1]:

  This specification provides a set of basic [XML Schema 1.0] patterns
  known to be interoperable between state of the art databinding
  implementations.

I don't see how that can or should have been input into XSD 1.1.
