                  The DescribeFeatureType operation allows a client application
                  to request that a Web Feature Service describe one or more
                  feature types.   A Web Feature Service must be able to generate
                  feature descriptions as valid GML3 application schemas.
                  The schemas generated by the DescribeFeatureType operation can
                  be used by a client application to validate the output.
                  Feature instances within the WFS interface must be specified
                  using GML3.  The schema of feature instances specified within
                  the WFS interface must validate against the feature schemas
                  generated by the DescribeFeatureType request.
              <xsd:extension base="wfs:BaseRequestType">
                      <xsd:element maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0"
                          name="TypeName" type="xsd:QName">
                              The TypeName element is used to enumerate the
                              feature types to be described.  If no TypeName
                              elements are specified then all features should
                              be described.  The name must be a valid type
                              that belongs to the feature content as defined
                              by the GML Application Schema.
                  <xsd:attribute default="text/xml; subtype=gml/3.1.1"
                      name="outputFormat" type="xsd:string" use="optional">
                           The outputFormat attribute is used to specify what schema
                           description language should be used to describe features.
                           The default value of 'text/xml; subtype=3.1.1' means that
                           the WFS must generate a GML3 application schema that can
                           be used to validate the GML3 output of a GetFeature
                           request or feature instances specified in Transaction
                           For the purposes of experimentation, vendor extension,
                           or even extensions that serve a specific community of
                           interest, other acceptable output format values may be
                           advertised by a WFS service in the capabilities document.
                           The meaning of such values in not defined in the WFS
                           specification.  The only proviso is such cases is that
                           clients may safely ignore outputFormat values that do
                           not recognize.
