On further consideration, I probably would back off my statement above; 
for example, it seems just fine to refer to the XMl schema basic type 
repertoire (or hopefully, a subset of it) by reference.  The problem 
that worries me here is where typing information comes from, and the 
supposition that types exist only as a side-effect of validation 
processing. -Tim
