The Web Services Description Working Group reviewed the XML Schema Second Edition.  We didn't find anything to complain about from the WSDL 2.0 point of view.

However, there is an ongoing concern about the readability of the specification, and one passage in particular was beyond our ability to parse and understand.

""" 
If the type definition resolved to by the actual value of the base 
[attribute] is a complex type definition whose own {content type} is 
mixed and a particle which is emptiable, as defined in Particle 
Emptiable (3.9.6) and the <restriction> alternative is chosen, then 
starting from the simple type definition corresponding to the 
<simpleType> among the [children] of <restriction> (which must be 
present) a simple type definition which restricts that simple type 
definition with a set of facet components corresponding to the 
appropriate element information items among the <restriction>'s 
[children] (i.e. those which specify facets, if any), as defined in 
Simple Type Restriction (Facets) (3.14.6);
"""

Perhaps there is a simpler way to communicate whatever concept this is trying to express.
