Xerces 2.1.0 is throwing the following error for one of my schemas:

"c:\dev\schemas\src\foo.xsd (121, 109) : error : For '_Bar' to be a member
of the substitution group set of 'myns:_Foo', its {abstract} must be false."

This appears to say that only the head of a substitution group can be
abstract="true". 
Is this correct?  This would appear to disallow the use of some useful
substitution group chains.
