Re: [xml-dev] Micro XSD for Micro XML?

Wild idea:
the MicroXSD validator may optionnally materialize the data types it infers
by injecting type-oriented attributes (such as @type="...., ...")

This feature is interesting when you want to:
1 - type your data for later use
2 - understand how a document is semantically structured, without
reading/understanding/mastering its XSD

PS: of course, we must agree that a a MicroXSD describes the mapping
between the semantic of the data and its XML representation, and not
just a bunch of technical unclear-to-humans russian-doll rules.
