Whoops. I should have heeded that. And as Richard Tobin just pointed out,
XML Namespaces is also using the word "type" differently than XML Schema. I
think the specs need to employ more consistent terminology on these matters,
as this just lends itself to confusion.

So I guess I have to go back to the perspective that I just changed my mind
about a few minutes ago. Although the inconsistent use of terminology
between specs is confusing (especially in that non-normative section of XML
Namespaces) there is nothing in XML 1.0 or XML Namespaces that is
inconsistent with the notion of local elements.

Well, once again xml-dev posters prove they have more to say about "what's
in a name" than Shakespeare ever dreamt of.  ;-)
