>The work of dynamic consistency checking of type assignments with the types which would be assigned to potential siblings is done in clause 5 of the validation rule Element Locally Valid (Complex Type).

Thanks. I've now sussed out how that works. Mind-blowing, I need a very strong
drink to recover. That leaves the question: is there an equivalent rule in XSD
1.0 that would make the content 

<X>3<X><X>2008-11-01</X> 

invalid against this content model, or have we introduced an incompatibility?

(And the secondary question, if it was allowed in 1.0, and no-one complained,
then who benefits from the introduction of this amazingly complex machinery
designed to make it invalid in 1.1?)
