I was asked to produce an XSD for the Signature Properties document, and I
saw that it was using an overly complex syntax to express something that's
just a URI. Using complex XML types tends to bother some people's software
much more than using simple text node element content does.

It's just a personal observation based on experience. If you have this in
running code and don't want to change it, that's fine.
