So, given all of that, I propose that the WG take the following actions:

1) undeprecate the use of the namespace
2) add explanatory text (based on Michael's 'a'), i.e. "they denote the
datatypes, but not the simple type definitions"
3) add a further comment that gives the following sort of information
   "this namespace is provided to make it easy for other specifications to
reference the datatypes.  Note that will inevitably be some magic in that
referencing.  Such magic is defined by them, and not by the XML Schema WG."

Obviously we won't say "magic" but that's the idea.  So it won't be deprecated,
but it will be clearly stated that we're not going to try to define exactly
what it means, either.  And we stop just short of saying that trying to define
it is beyond our ability.
