In "Schema Component Constraint: Derivation Valid (Extension)" section
1.4.1 (and in the 1.4.2 introduced by erratum E1-5, the phrase appears: 

"the {content type} of the complex type definition itself"

What exactly does this mean? Is the "itself" trying to indicate that
we're talking here about the value that the {content type} property
would have if the type were not derived by extension, rather than about
the true {content type} property of the type? I can't make sense of it
unless I read it that way.
