And here I was worried that it sounded like XTC, commonly used to describe a 
drug, or a band that sounded like they took a lot of it.  Sex, drugs, rock n' 
roll.  Okay, maybe it's not such a good idea.

XSchema sounds too inclusive to me, but it seems to be in the lead right now.

We'll see what people come up with in the next few days.  In the meantime, 
there's plenty of work to do ('deciding what it is before fixing a name')
