 Guys, we seem to have diverted from the issue 168 - type of the
external references. I'd like us to revisit my last suggestion
and maybe settle on something like it which could be used to
close this issue. I think it's obvious other issues have been
discussed a lot in this thread. 8-)

 My last suggestion is to put something like the following
somewhere in the Encoding section. This would effectively keep
the status quo, clarifying that other means of getting the type
are possible.

 "The href attribute can in fact point to anything at all and
it's the pointee's responsibility to provide it's type
information. (In case of XML, type can be gotten from a schema or
from the xsi:type attribute inf. item, in other cases by other
means.)"
