Is this an academic question or do you have a practical use case for
redefining XML Schema?

IMHO, anyone who refines XML Schema deserves to have interop problems. FYI,
the way IBM tools work is that they have a "hard coded" model for XML
Schema, e.g. when they see xsd:int, they map it to a Java int regardless
of what might appear in <wsdl:types> to redefine xsd:int.
