In 10.2.1:

>For a number of the above datatypes [XML Schema 
>Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition] extends the 
>basic [ISO 8601] lexical representations, such 
>as YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.s for dateTime, by 
>allowing a preceding minus sign, more than four 
>digits to represent the year field - no maximum 
>is specified - and an unlimited number of digits 
>for fractional seconds.
>For this specification, all minimally conforming 
>processors must support year values with a 
>minimum of 4 digits (i.e., YYYY) and a minimum 
>fractional second precision of 1 millisecond or 
>three digits (i.e., s.sss). However, conforming 
>processors may set larger 
>·implementation-defined ·limits on the maximum 
>number of digits they support in these two 

"For this specification" suggests that Schema does not allow/require
such minimums, but it does require the same minimums.
