There has been some communication failure on my part, leading to
confusion about this issue in the Primer.  The new PWD [1] makes clear 
that 

 a) <complexType> without <simpleContent> or <complexContent> daughter 
is equivalent to
 <complexType>
   <complexContent>
    <restriction base="anyType>...</restriction>
   </complexContent>
  </complexType>

 b) No content model particle (<all>, <choice>, <group>, <sequence>)
    == empty content
