Data Model Section 6.2.2 (Element Nodes--Accessors): The dm:string-value 
and dm:typed value accessors have some problems with terminology. Both 
accessor descriptions refer to "complex type with complex content" but 
this terminology is not found in XML Schema. In XML Schema, a complex type 
may have empty content, simple content, mixed content, or element-only 
content. The accessor descriptions should use these terms rather than the 
undefined term "complex content". For an example of how to do this, see 
Section 2.4.2 (Typed Value and String Value) in the language document, 
which the Data Model description should be consistent with in any case.
