There are several known issues with xs:anySimpleType I suggest reading 
 
http://www.w3.org/2001/05/xmlschema-rec-comments#pfiur-type
 
and

Hit the send button a mite too fast on my previous question since I now find the following at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#section-Built-in-Simple-Type-Definition
 
There is a simple type definition nearly equivalent to the simple version of the ·ur-type definition· <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#key-urType>  present in every schema by definition. It has the following properties:
Simple Type Definition of the Ur-Type	
Property	 Value	
{name} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#st-name> 	 anySimpleType	
{target namespace} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#st-target_namespace> 	 http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema	
{base type definition} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#st-base_type_definition> 	 ·the ur-type definition· <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#ur-type-itself> 	
{final} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#st-final> 	 The empty set	
{variety} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#variety> 	 ·absent· <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#key-null> 	
 
 
But I'm not sure that this entirely answers the question - the words "nearly equivalent" are worrying as the exact impact of the use of the word "nearly "doesn't seem to be fully explained. Again any insight would be helpful.
 
Thanks
