I have to confess I'm very much in the: (c) huh?  what are you talking about?
camp!

But do we really need a convincing story in XSD about the differences between
the two namespace in order just to preserve the 
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-datatypes namespace when it doesn't really add
value to XSD itself and represents just another element of confusion for the
reader?  Can't we say something along the lines of:

"For historical reasons the namespace
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-datatypes is reserved as an alias of
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema when referring to XSD datataypes so that it
may be used by other specifications to refer to the data types defined herein,
such that blah-di-blah." ?
