I am not contesting the fact that, generally speaking, a XPointer can be
used as a name, but the fact that I don't want to assign to my user
defined datatypes a name that depends on the location of my schema file
and thus that in this case a XPointer is not convenient.

Yes I have no problem with these ones, but I consider

file:yourSchema.xsd#myUnsignedInt

or even 

http://example.org/yourSchema.xsd#myUnsignedInt

as bad names since they depend on the actual physical location of the
schema file.
