I would add this note in Bugzilla, but the Bugzilla software
appears not to be responding.  To get it on the record before
I lose track of the issue, I'm filing it with www-xml-schema-comments

The relevant text was introduced in the proposal for bug 1889;
I've now confirmed that the tests we made on the grammar at that
time have charClassEsc in the production, not charClassExpr.
So I agree with Dave Peterson's analysis.

Probable cause:  faulty auto-completion of the token by fingers
too used to typing grammar non-terminals named ...Expr.
