good idea. Fortunately, UPA isn't a problem, so you can make the
simple type a union of what you have and xs:token (or some restriction
thereof in order to restrict the valid set of characters to something

I do think that your justification could be made clearer. You wish to
identify a host on the remote side of a NAT by identifying a flow that
you know that host is participating in. We all got this one wrong.
