yes but that doesn't answer the question as to why it would be useful to 
do that in a general XML context, as in my xpath example, why would it 
be useful to know it's a sequence of integers if you don't know 
everything else you needed to know about evaluating xpath (or json) and 
if you do know how to evaluate xpath it's not too hard to know that it 
is contained in particular attributes.

(x)html doesn't need a schema to tell it that what is in a script 
element is javascript/json
