In some sense, but if a schema is never applied, then your PSVI will only 
use the primitive types defined by XML 1.0.  In other words, you shouldn't 
need to change your data model at all.  Now, some stylesheets that require 
type matching to work might not work in your engine, but people choosing to 
use your (presumably) lighter-weight XPath engine would, I hope, be aware 
of that limitation.
