When I have a type or element declaration I'm still not able to build an 
xpath to the base type declaration, because I don't know if it's a complex 
or a simple type.

As a use case:
We are implementing a Mpeg7 database and use the XMLSchema as native 
language to define multimedia descriptors (as specified in Mpeg7). So we 
have a very large schema on the database server and the client askes for 
type, element etc. declarations on user demand. We wanted to use standard 
XPath for this and still think this would be the most appropriate way to do 
it, but it does not work for the reason explained above.
