My recollection is that xs:anySimpleType can be readily mapped to a string.
More importantly it can be easily parsed as if it was a regular
element/attribute value.

On the other hand, xs:anyType (<xs:element name="x"/>) requires 'special'
parsing and I would expect to be more problematic for tools.
