I can live with XTD although I'm not thrilled with it.

I like XSchema, but am a little worried about what it implies.  Coming from the 
database world, a schema to me means not only structure, but also data types, 
field length, privileges, keys, etc., which do not seem to be in our initial 
charter, although they might be in a later one.

Some other possibilities:
XStructure / XStruct  (I wrote this before reading Paul's latest.  Really.)
XEL (XML Element Language)
XDL (XML Definition Language -- matches DDL (Data Definition Language) in the 
database world)
