Re: Redefinition : validity of the redefined schema

Thanks for catching this.  The quote from section 3.4 [1] is a mistake --
it's in the informal section, whereas the formal semantics [2] makes
clear you can't _use_ an abstract type to validate an EII.  Otherwise
the perfectly sensible abstract-element-with-abstract-type in content
model would be disallowed.

However, your general point, which is that a schema must be error-free 
to serve as the target for redefinition, still stands, and I don't
think it should be changed.
