We don't allow a user-defined type to be derived by restriction from

But we do allow a user-defined type to be derived by restriction from
union(xs:anyAtomicType, xs:integer), or even from union(xs:anyAtomicType) (a
singleton union), which appears to have exactly the same semantics.

This seems inconsistent...

I cannot see any reason for allowing xs:anyAtomicType (or xs:anySimpleType) to
appear as a member type of a union or as an item type of a list.
