One issue I had with this proposal is that it uses <xs:annotation> inside
<xs:enumeration>.  The Schema spec allows this, and XML Spy lets you do it, but
TurboXML deletes any annotations inside enumerations as you load a Schema. 
This kind of patchy support is why I wouldn't normally use annotations inside
enumerations myself, even though I often want to annotate my enumerations.

Between this and the FPSC proposal, there seem to be numerous groups who want
to annotate the UBL Schemas.  I can't see all of the annotations making it into
the official Schemas.  It's a pity that the W3C has never moved on the SAF
(Schema Adjunct Framework) proposal, since this allowed the annotations to be
stored external to the Schema, and allowed multiple sets of annotations to be
attached to the same Schema.  It makes me wonder whether SAF should be lured to
OASIS instead, if its proponents are still interested.
