The Core Spec has the following definition:

*Integer - http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#int 

I think it is more consistent with the use of xsd:decimal to use 
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#integer as the generic integer type since 
it does not imply any size limit. 

xsd:int is 32-bit. 
xsd:integer has no size limit.
