This section is copied from XML Schema spec, just for the reader's

Quoting from the first paragraph of Appendix.E,

      The following summarization abstract schema component model has
      been extracted from [XSD Part 1] as a convenience for those not
      familar with XML Schema component model in understanding the
      binding of XML Schema components to Java representation. One must
      refer to [XSD Part 1] for the complete normative description for
      these components.

As I understand it, the binding (the process that determines how a
schema is mapped to Java) only is concerned with XML Schema, but the
runtime API is schema language agnostic.
