You're looking for complex types at any level of nesting and then comparing
them by name. Since named complex types can exist only at the top level, it
would be better to select only the top level complex types for this
comparison. Same applies to simple types.

Obviously this whole exercise is pretty rough-and-ready, for example it's
sensitive to differences in namespace prefixes, but I guess that doesn't
stop it being useful in practice.
