The WG will I'm sure reply to you 'officially' as soon as possible,
but I'd like to say on my own that this is very much the kind of use
case we're concerned to support, that XML Schema 1.1 is very likely to
include means to support it easily, and that I would hope 'weak' or
'second-class' wildcards would be a part of those means.

To ensure we're on the same page, please see below slight revisions
(indicated by change bars) of your example -- please let me know if
this involves any changes you're not happy with.
