Sorry to dip in on this discussion sorta randomly (and confusedly; I'm 
traveling again :))

When I brought up the various issues about alternative type systems, 
etc., it was made very clear to me that the element attribute could 
only refer to elements (as too the element component property). I 
suggeted that giving a way to refer to simple types would be a good and 
useful thing, and I still believe that *but* the model of how to do 
this, as strongly impressed upon me by the group, is to define a new 
attribute and component property.

(Unless I'm not at all tracking what's this discussion is about. If so, 
never mind.)

While not necessarily thrilled by this, it does seem to be the settled 
will of the group (and certainly how I've read the spec).
