a full xslt system can use user-defined schema types defined in an xsd
schema schmea a basic system can not use schema defined complex types at
all and is restricted to a fixed set of basic atomic types (a subset of
the schema built in types)

similarly a full system can "see" type annotations on elements that have
been added by a schema aware parser, so you can match elemets that have
a particular (perhaps user defined) type. In a basic schema all elements
are annotated as not having been typed by a schema processor.
