Henry:
I'm lost!  What is this in response to?

I worry about putting details of working with anySimpleType in the
structures spec when the datatypes spec says nothing about
anySimpleType.  This needs to be fixed.

All the best, Ashok

Subject: facets/derivations from anySimpleType


There's a comment in the non-normative section 3.14.1 saying it
shouldn't be named as a base type in a user definition.

This is certainly wrong on one count -- it rules out defining a
user-named
synonym for anySimpleType, which should be OK.

It's probably wrong on another count -- both whiteSpace and pattern
facets make sense as restrictions on aST, and the sForS actually gives 
whiteSpace facet values in all its pseudo-definitions of the builtin
in primitives.

So I think the comment should be changed to point out instead that only
those facets make sense, and a normative prohibition of any others
should be added to part 2.
