I've been reading XSD 1.1 and have a number of editorial comments that I 
hope would make the spec easier to read.  I imagine that I should submit 
these to www-xml-schema-comments@w3.org.

One thing I'm wondering is, should I do one big long e-mail with all 
comments in there, or should I send one e-mail per comment?

Is it worth me presenting the comments here on xml-dev first so that peers 
have the option to say what I'm suggesting is rubbish, thus saving the WG 
some effort?

The really big thing I'd like to suggest is breaking the complexType section 
into multiple parts.  This has 5 complicated intertwined use cases (if you 
include the <complexType><sequence> scenario) and is a major barrier to 
understanding XML schema.  (Whereas attributes, which are trivial by 
comparison, have two sections; the second one not really adding much.) 
Would such a suggestion be automatically dismissed?

Similarly, would suggesting a change in the order of sections be 
automatically dismissed?
