"simple type (definition)" worries me slightly.  We certainly have datatypes, and Simple Type Definitions, 
and they are certainly different.  Each Simple type Definition selects a datatype and associates with it at 
least a name and a position in the "construction" hierarchy.  I suppose a "simple type" might be construed 
as, perhaps, the triple of name, hierarchy position, and datatype, but we have not defined the term 'simple 
type' and have been careful (I hope) not to use it in Part 2.
