XML Schema and international Booleans

Hi All

While reading XML Schema part 2: Datatypes, looking the boolean data
I found this statement:
"An instance of a datatype that is defined as boolean can have the
following legal lexical values {true, false}. The
lexical representation is fixed and cannot be changed. The lexical
representation facet is not supported."

Does this mean that I cannot create sub types of boolean which allows
other languages  than English?
This is neccesary because in Swedish "true"="sant" and "false"="falskt"

What I want to use is something like...

<datatype name="myBoolean">
     <basetype name="boolean"/>
        <literal> 0  </literal>
        <literal> 1  </literal>
        <literal> sant  </literal>
        <literal> falskt  </literal>
        <literal> true  </literal>
        <literal> false  </literal>

However here the binding between literal and boolean value is missing.

Im I missing something here ?
