I think this is important too.  My point is that there are multiple kinds of
type assignment each of which is important for different classes of
application.  Fortunately, the way we are layering type assignment on top of
RELAX NG means we are not forced to adopt a single kind of type assignment.
Of course, we don't want to have too many different kinds of type

Incidentally, I believe XQuery needs type-assignment for text nodes as well.

What I'm not sure about with XQuery is the extent to which it needs to know
about the type hierarchy.
