xsd-regexp.el is in dire need of an update, so that it no longer uses
its private database of characters, their corresponding Unicode
blocks, and character properties.  We have in Emacs the full Unicode
database, and a few derived char-tables, that should be used instead.
What we have there now is a maintenance headache, and is almost sure
lag behind the current Unicode standard, whereas the rest of Emacs is
up to date in that regard.  Which means xsd-regexp is inconsistent
with the rest of Emacs.

Likewise the references to Mule charsets is something that should be
long gone from Emacs.

Volunteers are welcome to clean up that file.
