[Bug 1974] Our published names for datatypes etc. don't resolve

I withdraw both the precise formulation of problem in the Description of this
issue, and the proposed resolution given in e.g.
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=1974#c6 and the candidate
namespace document referenced there.  Short reason?  They both assume that
(X)HTML anchors are the right way to make it the case that e.g.
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int "uniquely address[es]" the int datatype. 
But by definition such anchors would cause that URI to address an (X)HTML
element.  Elements are not datatypes.  See thread starting at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2012Feb/0039.html for a more
detailed analysis.

Proposed new Description:

  We claim in Part 2 that e.g. http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int
  is the name for the int type, but nothing reachable today from
      http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema
  makes this the case.

  We should fix this.

I'll try to propose an approach for a resolution soon.
