Its "trivial" yes, but its not "right" IMHO :)

Nor is it necessarily efficient.


I wouldn't bet a case of beer that for a large value of attribute x that


     points = fn:tokenize( $x , "[ ,]")


is more efficient then for a node x with point children

     points = $x/point


I can imagine in some processors for some size of $x one or the other is more efficient.


But is that a reason to make the design decision for a (potentially) widely used standard schema ?

This is a serious question, not rhetorical.

Hmm - I can imagine some cases where the document size would more than double using this scheme - not an unimportant consideration for high-performance worldwide document distribution.  Perhaps the ideal would have been to allow both encodings.
