Sure, it will not work in the general case, but as I said, it is a
compromise. At least it accepts everything that has to be accepted. It can
accept something that has to be rejected, but we have to live with it
because that's the limit of W3C XML Schema 1.0.

I'd like to know if there are good theoretical reasons, too.

But even if it turns out that there is really no reason, I think it's too
late to change the 1.0 spec because it's already an recommendation.

So no matter whether there are reasons or not, I think you'll have to try
another or stick with the ugly workaround.
