A Value Array is used for homogeneous arrays of primitive and aggregate values.  
The member values may be scalars, composites, arrays or lists.
ValueArray has the same content model as CompositeValue, but the member values shall be homogeneous.  The element declaration contains a Schematron constraint which expresses this restriction precisely.  Since the members are homogeneous, the gml:referenceSystem (uom, codeSpace) may be specified on the gml:ValueArray itself and inherited by all the members if desired.
