What's "they"?  Both sets of URIs?  Only those in the deprecated namespace?

Right now the undeprecated namespace URIs explicitly "address" the datatypes. 
Nothing is said about referencing simple type definitions.

Can someone explain why one "address" for the datatypes is easier to use to
reference the datatypes than the other?

What is it that the "addressing" URI references--in either case?  How does
either reference/address a datatype without the same magic?
