Last month I talked with a fellow in the semiconductor industry, Mauro
Simonetti (mauro.simonetti@st.com), who very much wanted to make sure that
XML Schema could handle all the datatypes that they need, since he felt
they were "so basic."  He would, of course, prefer that his datatypes be
covered natively (as built-ins?), but that's what everyone wants.  Perhaps,
if his items are of general enough utility, they could be a schema module
that we would put in an include library (but I'm not really qualified to
comment!).  I promised I would pass along his lists:
