           Summary: Inappropriate use of MAY in 2.4.1.1
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2
        AssignedTo: David_E3@VERIFONE.com
        ReportedBy: mike@saxonica.com

In 2.4.1.1 we read "No ·user-defined· datatype MAY have anyAtomicType as its
·base type·"

The RFC2119 "MAY" is always permissive. We should not use RFC markup for an
occurrence of "may" that is imposing a constraint. 

Suggest: "A ·user-defined· datatype MUST NOT have anyAtomicType as its ·base
type·"
