The XML Schema WG discussed this issue together with XML Query and XSL
at the ftf meetings in October 2007 in Redmond.  The discussion uncovered
some new technical arguments, but we did not reach consensus.  

In particular, we noted that QT allows implementations to add new primitive
datatypes, and regards those primitives as restrictions of anySimpleType.
This means (some WG members argued) that the QT specs already entail an
understanding of anySimpleType as including all atomic values, whether
they are values of currently defined primitives or not.  Other WG members
argued that an alternative view would be that QT entails a view in which
it doesn't matter in practice if different implementations have slightly
different value spaces for anySimpleType.  Analogous positions can be
constructed regarding the addition of new primitive datatypes in future
versions of XSDL and/or QT.

Next steps:  the chair does not propose to schedule this issue for further
WG discussion until the editors have prepared one or more wording proposals
for concrete consideration.
