Remove those nasty g letters from gYearMonth etc. gregorian
calendar built-in simple date types. Or remove those datatypes
entirely. It is nice that you have simplified built-in datatype
hierarchy but at least I don't think that those gregorian calendar
datatypes are relevant to be included in XML Schema specification.

They are also bit confusing because the lexical reprensentation of
them is a little bit strange. And we already have dateTime, date
and time primitive types. I can't see any reason for those datatypes
to be included in final recommendation. If someone needs them they
can always derive new simple types to represent those gregorian
datatypes.

Kind Regards
