Henry, if I thought I actually understood how complex types, complex 
content, and block, final, and xsi:type interact I'd be happy to do 
so.  (And yes, I've tried quite hard to figure out those parts.)

As it stands, the spec _may_ be internally consistent, but I sure don't 
think authors using W3C XML Schema will be as consistent/reliable.

I think the W3C XML Schema Working Group piled too many parts in the same 
box, and a lot of things are just plain crushed.

And then I'd just love to be able to reliably identify non-Gregorian 
calendar types...
