Fixing error in value element definition

Both the schema and the element overview of the value element child of 
item/itemset allow the inline content to be mixed content, i.e. chardata 
and or elements in any namespace but XForms.

Clearly this is wrong as value is for simple string content and copy is 
for subtree copying.  The inline content is supposed to be consistent with 
the content that can be obtained from the ref and value attributes. 
Moreover, we don't want chunks of the host document to be copied into the 
instance data.

I am fixing this now in the schema and the spec; please respond if you 
think this is other than a blatant spec error.
