/ Paul Prescod <paul@prescod.net> was heard to say:
| Is there a conformance level of either XQuery or XPath that allows one
| to avoid the implementation of XML Schema datatypes altogether?

I think that's still the subject of discussion within the WGs.

There would clearly be some "ease-of-implementation" value in
providing such a level. (And it would probably satisfy the folks who
want XSLT 2.0 with XPath 1.0.)

But would it be different, in practice, from using a datatype-capable
processor to process well-formed XML with no schema using a stylesheet
that didn't use any type constructs?

                                        Be seeing you,
