I think you're missing his point, being that rather than making the end user
include xsi:type, if he just defines a "time-complex" and a "time-simple"
element in his schema, the end user now only has to choose which element to
use (schema stuff can be confusing to end users, so I agree that whenever
you can exclude them from your instance docs, you should).
