If an element matches <any> with processContents=skip, but has an
xsi:type attribute, may/must it be assessed?

Schema-Validity Assessment (Element) disallows finding an element
declaration or laxly validating using the ur-type when the
context-determined declaration is skip, but does not mention skip in
section 1.2 which includes the xsi:type case.

It seems most reasonable to me that an element matching skip should be
completely untouched by the validator, just like an element outside
the validation-root.
