The in-scope schema definitions still come from:

1. built-in types
2. explicit schema import
3. implementation-defined additions

Module import does not import the ISSD of the imported module. And it shouldn't
- a single query should be allowed to use library modules whose definitions may
conflict if merged into one ISSD, e.g. library modules for various flavors of

So I think the effect of the proposed change is limited: 

1. Importing such a module is not an error

2. Variables and functions can be used even if their types are unknown, because
their derivation is known, and the implementation can determine whether they
are allowed in a given expression.
