This seems like an excellent idea - one I would have missed, given my crazy
tendencies toward hand-building XML documents. It's certainly something we
should consider as part of the Doc element for the XSchema, or perhaps it
deserves its own place. At the very least, I would hope this information
would appear in the human-readable documentation we're enabling in XSchemas.
