I'd be happy with the following resolution of these issues:

- remove xsd:duration alternate from the @value attribute

- if @type is to be retained (and I think it should) it should be 
inherited from the typed class, or specified explicitly.  Let's not have 
it inheritable from more than one class, at least!

- @full is otiose, redundant, rebarbative and Should Go Now.
