AFAIK the Zend Soap WSDL accessor already maps up php types to xsd
types; a PHP String maps to an xsd:string, integer to xsd:int and so forth.

XML schema 1.1 datatypes are pretty much the same as; and backwards
compatible with the current xml schema datatypes (which are still the
recommended standard, as 1.1 isn't a recommendation yet, work in
progress) and use the same namespace. Thus the existing implementation
should be xml w3c complaint both now and in the future.

All that's said purely based on the zend docs [1] and not through
practically using Zend_Soap_Wsdl_* though!
