I don't actually see anything in the REC which blocks a simple type
definition of {variety} 'list' whose {item type definition} is not derived
from its {base type definition}'s {item type definition}.  Ditto for
{variety} 'union' and {member type definitions}.

There's no way to _notate_ such a definition given the XML
Representation constraints (I don't think), but it would be easy to
allow this.

I'm not sure whether this is two errata or something for 1.1., but the 
WG needs to discuss it.
