           Summary: Align text on anySimpleType mediating between anyType
                    and simple types
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC

In section 3.14.7 of Structures, there is a paragraph reading

    The simple ur-type definition is the root of the simple type
    definition hierarchy, and as such mediates between the other
    simple type definitions, which all eventually trace back to it via
    their {base type definition} properties, and the ur-type
    definition, which is its {base type definition}. This is why the
    simple ur-type definition is exempted from the first clause of
    Simple Type Definition Properties Correct (3.14.6), which would
    otherwise bar it because of its derivation from a complex type
    definition and absence of {variety}.

In section 4.1.6 of Datatypes, the corresponding paragraph reads:

    The definition of anySimpleType is the root of the Simple Type
    Definition hierarchy, and as such mediates between the other
    simple type definitions, which all eventually trace back to it via
    their {base type definition} properties, and thus to the
    definition of anyType, which is its {base type definition}.

These need to be aligned.  First, Structures needs to change to use
the name 'anySimpleType', and second, Datatypes needs to restore the
sentence structure so it makes sense.  As far as I can tell, the
damage was done when this paragraph was introduced, at the time we
introduced adding anyAtomicType to the spec.

I believe this is purely editorial.
