I disagree that the distinction isn't significant. For instance in XQuery this means 
could return xdt:anyAtomicType, thus 
cannot be checked statically but instead must resort to dynamic failures.  This is just one of many places where W3C XML Schema's inconsistent rules cause problems for type checking in XQuery.

I agree that deriving a simple type from a complex type would be
horrible. But in this case you're deriving a complex type with simple
content from a complex type with complex content, which is somewhat
different (though you might still think it's weird, I suppose).
