I was looking at the XML-Data proposal just today and thinking 'why don't
we use the primitives it defines, just as they are, without the rest of
XML-data?'. This encourages me to offer the question to a wider audience. I
am seriously missing a specification for  primitives - what do other people
think about borrowing those from XML-data?
