Ah. That'll need the new xsd xml schema. That'll then need compiling to an 
updated ooxml-schemas jar, and finally we could update POI to read 
(though likely not write, for compatibility reasons)

I think the reason for not moving to the newer schema was worry about it 
breaking existing things. If someone had time, it'd be great to check 
exactly what did get changed in the new schema files, and if it was all 
additions of new fields (like this case) or if any existing ones were 
altered or removed?
