I think you've missed the point.

I want to tell the outside world, via the WSDL,  that property X is an
xsd:datetime (hmm ok, for that to make sense forget PHP's DateTime
builtin class)

How do I do that using AutoDiscovery?

PHP doesn't have all the types that I can ask for.

If I use PHP's types, they are all strings. So any junk can be put in.

The consumer of the service isn't PHP, but (I believe) C#. So strongly typed.

It isn't about mapping PHP "types"  to W3C types.
