Yes, I misunderstood you. You can't do it with OpenSAML. With extension
types, you might be able to derive it from the xsi:type, but with the
built-ins, you'd have to have the underlying schema itself to supply that

I think there are APIs in the parser for accessing "type information" when
you validate, but I have no experience using them. I believe they involve
the PSVI extensions to the DOM.

Even with OS2, we don't explicitly capture the XML "type" unless it's
supplied as a schemaType property of the XMLObject.
