In the Microsoft IdentityConstraint test set, test idZ015, the value of the
field selector is a node that (as a result of matching an anyAttribute
wildcard) has type xs:anySimpleType.

The author of the test appears to have concluded that the instance document is
therefore invalid. I don't see how this can be inferred from the spec. The spec
says that every datatype (presumably including xs:anySimpleType) has a value
space, and has an equals() operator; the semantics of the equals() operator in
this case are not clearly spelt out, but this test could only fail if the
equality relation were undefined, which it isn't.

Unless I've missed a rule that the test author is relying on, the WG needs to
provide clarification of this case.
