OTOH http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#xsi.nil says


Attribute Declaration for the 'nil' attribute



{name} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#a-name#a-name> 


{target namespace} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#a-target_namespace#a-target_namespace> 


{type definition} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#type_definition#type_definition> 

The built-in boolean <http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xmlschema-2-20010502/datatypes#boolean>  simple type definition

{scope} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#a-scope#a-scope> 


{value constraint} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#a-value_constraint#a-value_constraint> 

*absent* <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#key-null#key-null> 

{annotation} <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#a-annotation#a-annotation> 

*absent* <http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#key-null#key-null> 


So what should be considered normative?


Best regards

Subject: Built-in Attributes


The xsi schema at http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance defines the built-in attributes:


  <xs:attribute name="nil" /> 

  <xs:attribute name="type" /> 

  <xs:attribute name="schemaLocation" /> 

  <xs:attribute name="noNamespaceSchemaLocation" />


This implies that their types are xs:anySimpleType. However the F.S. gives more specific types. Shouldn't we align with the xsi schema?


Best regards
