Hello,

I think this is a very simple question, but I can't seem to find any
documentation on it.  Is this a legal application of the xsi:type
construct?:

<isOkay xsi:type="xsd:boolean"/>

With validation turned off, it seems like this would be a reasonable
representation of no value (null) for a data item that is either true,
false, or empty.

thanks,
Tobin
