And, just to restate, the ISO DSDL effort is very interested in comments about WXS 
primitive and built-in datatypes.  Unless there are compelling cases why the primitive
and built-in types (sans type extension) are not a good working set of data types, I 
expect the ISO DSDL effort would not place a real high priority on making an alternative
datatype set (at least in 2003).  For example: the type derivation mechanisms (list, union,
restriction) miss out on units:-- is that more important in the scheme of things than 
Australian dates?
