The only cases where the match pattern enables one to do any static type
inference is when the match is specifically against a schema type, for


In the much more common case where elements are matched by name, for example


no formal inferencing is possible, because this will match any element
called my:invoice whether it conforms to a schema definition of that name or
not. However, it is possible in this case to do some tentative inferencing,
and generate warning messages of the form "if the input is a valid invoice,
this template will produce no output".
