OK, so the reason is backwards compatibility with existing XDM
implementations. Besides that, assuming this issue didn't exist, would
you consider this a good feature? People who care about simple type
safety but don't really care about complex type safety could basically
forget about XSD and use their own little schema language/function to
convert an untyped tree to a type-annotated one, in pure XSLT.
