Suggest a slight change:

"However, some schema >structures< processing involves XPath expressions; when
evaluating these expressions, the rules of XPath apply."

Reason:  while the original proposal is both correct and in the style of
similar warnings, I think this is an easy way to assure people that they need
not scan the rest of the Datatypes specification looking for edge cases that
use XPath.  Given that our datatypes are used in contexts other than
structures, I think it's of at least small incremental value to point out that
the XPath dependency is only in structures.
