Thank you for your comment.  At a joint face-to-face meeting the XSL WG, XML
Query WG and Schema WG discussed this issue (which had also been raised
internally at W3C).  I have marked this issue as closed, "fixed" -- please feel
free to reopen it if you are not satisified with the following resolution:

Here is the resolution:

The XQuery Working Group has discussed this question with the XML
Schema Working Group, which has given us permission to move
xdt:anyAtomicType, xdt:yearMonthDuration, and xdt:dayTimeDuration in
the XML Schema namespace "http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema", along
with xdt:untyped, and xdt:untypedAtomic. We will rename these types to
xs:anyAtomicType, xs:yearMonthDuration, xs:dayTimeDuration xs:untyped,
and xs:untypedAtomic. At that point, all XQuery built-in types will be
defined in the XML Schema namespace.

Although this change may cause some short term difficulties, we
believe this simplifies our type system in the long run, and will
benefit users of both XQuery and XML Schema. Because XML Schema 1.1 is
still only a Working Draft, these types are defined in the XQuery and
XPath Data Model specification in XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0.

The XML Schema Working Group has added some of these types to the
current XML Schema 1.1 Working Draft [1]. We will coordinate with the
XML Schema Working Group as the two specifications progress.
