Reason for change between CR and Rec.

The CR release of W3C XML Schema was much closer to ISO 8061 by defining 
fewer primitive related datatypes and more facets derive arbitrary user 
defined datatypes.

The overall mechanism was probably more complex, but some features such 
as defining recurring points in time with arbitrary periods have been 
sacrified to this simplification.

Could someone from the WG be kind enough to summarize the reasons which 
had led to this decision?
