Thanks for the clarification.
Does anyone know if there will be a patch release of the WFS 1.1 schema to deal with the error?

Yes, 200.2 is an invalid request entity. The empty ogc:PropertyName 
element present in the original request was intended to verify this 
BBOX requirement in Filter 1.1, cl. 8.2:

"If the optional <propertyName> element is not specified, the 
calling service must determine which spatial property is the spatial 
key and apply the BBOX operator accordingly. For feature types that 
has a single spatial property, this is a trivial matter."

The inconsistency between the (normative) text and the on-line filter 
1.1 schema has been pointed out; supplying an empty element is a work 

Now, 203.3 is intended to raise an exception but shouldn't do so in 
its current form: the request entity should specify a PropertyName 
that is _not_ "sf:attribut.Géométrie" (e.g. sf:attributGeometrie).
