The spec uses both `xsd:` and `xs:` as prefixes for
`http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema`. XML Schema Part 1 uses `xs:` and

    "For brevity, the text and examples in this specification use the
prefix `xs:` to stand for this namespace"

while Part 2 [2] also uses `xs:` mostly but uses `xsd:` in a couple of
examples. I suggest we standardize on using `xs:` everywhere.

If agreed, I can make the changes.
